Geographic Information Science
The geographic information science (GIS) concentration is a structured interdisciplinary program. It is built on GIS course work currently being taught at ASU. Students who earn the concentration exit the program with standardized skill sets based on learning outcomes associated with each required course.
- Students must complete a minimum of 20 credit hours including 12 of upper division hours for this concentration.
- All courses must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.00) or higher.
- A minimum 12 hours must be taken in courses offered by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
- To enhance the understanding of the subject matter, the selected courses are sequential in nature and require certain prerequisites. Consequently, students should carefully note the semester in which any of these courses are offered.
- Students are limited to 3 total hours of Internship, Thesis, Individualized Instruction, or Directed Study.
