The undergraduate certification in geographic information systems, as distinct from the minor in geography, is focused on meeting the needs of students who want to acquire grounding in geospatial analytical tools (cartography, remote sensing, and GIS). The certificate helps students prepare for entry-level positions in the private sector or government.
Students must earn a minimum GPA of 3.0 for courses within the certificate program to qualify for the certificate.
