Students from across UNCW's undergraduate and graduate programs enroll in GISci courses offered in the Dept. of Geography & Geology. The curriculum is organized as follows:
B.A. in Applied Geography:
Students who are interested in earning a B.A. in geography can choose from three options: human, physical and applied. To learn more about these options check out the undergraduate catalog BA in Geography (page 150) and the course descriptions (page 283). Also check out the BA in Geography webpage.
Undergraduate Certificate in Geographic Information Science:
Many students who major in Geography, Environmental Studies, Geology, and many others also enroll in the GISci certificate. Also, students who have already received an undergraduate degree can come back to school and enroll in the GISci certificate! To enroll in the Certificate, come by the Geography and Geology Dept. Office (DeLoach Hall room 102) to fill out a form. You must be a UNCW student to enroll in the certificate. To learn more about the certificate, check out the GISci Certificate Webpage.
