Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) is used to solve problems associated with land administration, environment and natural resource management, planning and population studies, as well as traditional surveying and mapping applications. GIST uses GIS, remote sensing, and global positioning mapping to collect, analyze and display spatial information. This major is similar to the BS in GIST; however, University Studies also requires two minors of the students’ choosing. Ideally, the minors would be in related fields to build depth and breadth around themes that the student wishes to emphasize. Finally, the University Studies – GIST major does not require the tracks found in the GIST major (e.g., CDA, ESA, or HSS).
