Minor in GIS @ Berkeley

Great news!! The Minor in Geospatial Information Science and Technology has been approved in 2 departments at UC Berkeley!  Environmental Science, Policy and Management (in the College of Natural Resources), and the Department of City and Regional Planning in the College of Environmental Design now have Minors in Geospatial Information Science and Technology and includes courses across campus. These programs would serve students in geography and other social sciences, archeology, environmental science, policy and management, city and regional planning, humanities, architecture, landscape architecture and environmental planning, civil and environmental engineering, public policy, and environmental public health. The Minor will help prepare graduates for a workplace in public and private sectors with increasing need for geospatial expertise. In 2010, the Dept. of Labor's Employment and Training Administration (ETA) tagged Geospatial Technologies as a "High Growth Industry". The Minor is open to all majors at UC Berkeley.
