The GIS minor is designed to assist students in developing geospatial knowledge and skills which are relevant to their chosen field of study. We work closely with several programs to create an educational experience grounding students with skills and knowledge applicable to a variety of real-world situations. This includes partnering with faculty and staff in the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, School of Science, Homeland Security Program, and Computer Science. The minor begins with a firm foundation in our GIS 250: Introduction to GIS course. This course is taught every fall and spring semester and also satisfies the Technological Literacy (TL) requirement.
Students are able to choose from an increasingly wide range of courses beyond GIS 250. Many of these higher level courses are offered by specialists in their field of study. These offerings currently include courses in Marine Biology, Criminal Justice, Homeland Security, Anthropology & Archaeology, and Geography. The GIS minor is a living program and we are working on adding computer science and humanities GIS courses in the coming years. Monmouth University's GIS Program is dedicated to student success and we are happy to craft an educational experience tailored to each student's goals. Please feel free to contact the GIS Program Director, Edward Gonzalez-Tennant, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 732-571-4458 with any questions.
