The BS in Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) requires semester credit hours for completion in the Computation, Design, and Analysis (CDA), Earth Systems Analysis (ESA), or the Human Systems and Society (HSS) tracks.

The Earth Systems and Analysis (ESA) track is designed to attract students interested in applying GIST to physical geography. It applies geospatial technologies to the study of the Geosciences and assessing the Earth’s natural resources by providing students with a foundation in biogeography, climate, geomorphology, soil science, geology, ecosystem science, as well as a strong grounding in GIST.
