Landscape Analysis Option
This option is offered within the following major(s):
Also available via Ecampus.
This option prepares students to work with Geographic Information Science technology in a natural resource field such as wildfire ecology, land use planning, forestry, ecological restoration, and more. The pairing of the technical skills of GIScience with a disciplinary knowledge in a natural resource area will prepare students for the practical application of technical skills in the real world.
In addition, this specialty option will allow students to earn the GIScience Undergraduate Certificate through the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences concurrently with their BS degree through the College of Forestry. The student will apply to the GIS Certificate Program as well as the Natural Resources Program.
Students should contact Kuuipo Walsh (firstname.lastname@example.org), GIScience Certificate Program Director, to enroll in the GIScience Certificate Program.
No S/U grades are accepted for the GEO courses that are counted for the GIS Certificate.
No more than 24 credits from one department; no more than 20 lower-division credits.
