Geographic Information System (GIS) is a very important skill for many environmental scientists. This concentration gives students an extensive skill set in GIS that they can use in the job market or as an entry point into graduate school. We also offer the Environmental GIS and GIS double major program so students can earn two degrees, in Environmental GIS and GIS, by taking one additional semester.
In addition to Environmental Geographic Information Systems, other concentrations in this major include:
Employment of life, physical, and social science occupations is projected to grow 7 percent from 2018 to 2028, faster than the average for all occupations, which will result in about 97,400 new jobs. Increasing demand for expertise in the sciences, particularly in occupations involved in environmental protection, is projected to result in employment growth. The median annual wage for life, physical, and social science occupations was $66,070 in May 2018, which was higher than the median wage for all occupations of $38,640.
