New Academic Program: BS Environmental and Spacial Sciences

The Department of Geography is now offering a new Bachelor of Science program in Environmental and Spatial Sciences. Environmental scientists with advanced training in geospatial technologies (i.e. geographic information science (GIS), global positioning system (GPS) technology, remote sensing, data management, and cartography) are well positioned for careers in environmental analysis and mitigation of environmental problems. The proposed program prepares students to assess environmental and human-environment systems, identify and evaluate environmental problems, and design innovative and sustainable solutions.
