Undergraduate Concentration in Geospatial Information Systems

 

The undergraduate concentration in Applied Geospatial Information Systems leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Sciences and is designed to prepare students to meet the rapidly increasing need for graduates who are highly qualified in the application and use of GIS for the agricultural, natural resource, and environmental sectors. Undergraduate courses are designed and taught with a practical, applied orientation and will meet the needs of any field of study, from Biology, Business, Education, and Engineering to Government, Law, Military, and Public Health. Research opportunities and internships are also available to students enrolled in the undergraduate program.
