Minor in GIScience

An undergraduate minor in GIScience consists of a minimum of 18 hours in courses designated as GIScience. Students must take courses from at least two different departments. Either GEO 426 Principles of GIS (cross-listed as ANT402) or IST 423 GIS and Data Systems is required. Students are encouraged to take both GEO 426 and IST 423. Students must have a B (3.0) average in their GIScience courses and no grade below a C (2.0) in their GIScience courses to earn the minor. Students may not earn a GIScience minor and a GIScience undergraduate certificate.
