Geographic Information Systems

Learn how to Map the World!

Explore the world of spatial analysis and cartography with geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing. The Department of Geography offers coursework using GIS in their regular BA and BSc programs, but also Major and Minor programs in Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

Programs  

The Department of Geography offers both BA and BSc programs in Geography, a BSc program in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), and it is closely integrated with the spectrum of Environment programs.

The Geography curriculum stresses the integrative nature of the discipline as well as the development of skills in geographical information analysis. We expect students to develop the high levels of geographical problem-solving skills required for some of the most dynamic areas of today’s job market. Field studies complement lectures by providing material for workshops, developing skills in geographical information analysis, encouraging student involvement in basic enquiry, and building cooperation.
