Geographic Information Systems Minor: 18 units


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: University Interdisciplinary Programs

Offered by: Cal Poly Pomona, University Interdisciplinary Programs

The interdisciplinary GIS Minor was created for Cal Poly Pomona students whose majors include engineering, business, design, science, urban planning, education, agriculture, social sciences, and humanities in an effort to create a GIS-literate campus. The minor serves students who are interested in the application of GIS to their area of knowledge, or who seek to develop their skills in GIS-related areas. GIS technology offers new and powerful ways of combining data, mapping and spatial analysis to support research, management and policy-making. GIS users are trained in spatial modeling and know how to manipulate digital data, create databases, and streamline applications.

Components of the program include: data acquisition and manipulation; development of spatial thinking and visualization skills; creation of models and use of analytic methods; task automation and model building; problem solving using applied GIS technology; learning to create effective output; process management; GIS theory and ethics; and an interdisciplinary focus.

For more information students may contact Gabriel Granco, the Interdisciplinary GIS Minor Coordinator, at ggranco@cpp.edu.

Note(s):


The minor Coordinator can petition suitable intro GIS courses from other disciplines and/or colleges.

Note(s):


All GIS minors must take at least 9 units outside of their Major to be awarded the GIS Minor.

The elective list may need to be modified to add additional courses from departments that have contributed to the GIS minor under the quarter system.
