Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in the Geography Department

The Geography Department offers a wide variety of courses in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing (RS).  Your Geography Degree will include training with GIScience technologies.  In addition, we serve as the administrative home for GIScience certificates and minor for Marshall University.

Minor and Certificate Programs in GIScience

The Geography Department participates in an Undergraduate Minor in Geospatial Information Science, an Undergraduate Certificate in GIScience and two Graduate Certificates in GIScience.

Please see the Geospatial Information Science web site for more information.
