Geog. Information Science & Technology

GIST provides a set of analytical skills for handling geospatial information. These skills are in high demand in both the private and public sectors, and across the broad spectrum of the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

Geospatial technologies (GIST) include Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), and spatial modeling.


The GIST concentration provides students with a background in the science, techniques, and application of these geospatial skills that will enable them to embark on public and private sector careers or to undertake further studies in geography, planning, public policy, ecology, environmental science and other fields.
