Geographic Information Systems Minor

Program Codes: GIS

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and related techniques for spatial data collection and analysis are increasingly important tools in forestry, recreation, natural resources, environmental science, and related disciplines. The GIS Minor is designed to allow students currently enrolled in other programs to develop and demonstrate their skills in this important area. Minors can only be pursued and earned in conjunction with a degree program. They cannot be earned after completion of the degree; they must be earned prior to or at the same time.

A minimum of 18 credit hours is required to complete this program, but several of the required courses or restricted electives have prerequisites, so students starting with no applicable college-level course credits will typically have to complete a minimum of 22 credit hours.
