This Geographic Information Systems degree option prepares graduates to work outside collecting data using electronic equipment such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) or ArcPad, laser range-finders, and data-loggers. Students will also work inside at a computer, downloading the data collected into databases to produce Geographic Information systems (GIS) computer-generated maps for public and private entities. Requirements for field experience with this degree are consistent with the Natural Resources BAS agreement.
Students may enter the Natural Resources program in any quarter, however many Natural Resources courses are only offered one time each year. Correct sequencing is important!
