The Bachelor of Science degree in Geography and Geographic Information Systems (GGIS) is a hands-on, student-focused program that is designed to inspire, captivate, and prepare you for your future career in any related field or industry.

Overview

Geography and Geographic Information Systems are computer-based systems used for recording, storing, analyzing, and displaying spatial/geographic data. GGIS show a myriad of different types of data and display spatial statistics in order to draw specified conclusions. In essence, GGIS is storytelling by way of geography instead of books. Every time we use navigation on our smartphones, look up the nearest restaurant, or decide where to vacation to, we are using GGIS. Geography and Geographic information systems are used to track climate changes, wildlife migration patterns, shopping and consumer habits, oil and gas exploration, infectious disease outbreaks, just to name a few. These systems are used in every sector of the economy and in almost every discipline.
