New Minor in Geospatial Information Science
A new Minor in Geospatial Information Science has just been approved by the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills & Training (MAEST). The new minor is an interdisciplinary science program that will introduce BA and BSc students to Geospatial Information Science (GIS) theory, concepts, techniques, and applications through completion of 30 credits. Graduates from this program will be equipped with skills that enable analysis of spatial data in ways that enhance society in a variety of disciplines including epidemiology, climate change, and water allocation. It is expected that the minor will be available in September 2020 and it will be open to all majors in a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science program.
