The Department of Geography offers two majors: Geography and Spatial Data Science and Technology.
Double Majoring with SDS
Spatial Data Science and Technology is well-suited to be combined with another major. At only 48 credits it can be completed within about two years along with other coursework. For example, you could double major in SDS and Geography for a total of 78 credits. However, SDS would also complement other interests and majors that you may have, including Computer Science, Planning and Public Policy Management, Environmental Studies, Earth Science, Journalism, Business, Anthropology, Biology, Sociology, Economics, and much more. The Spatial Data Science and Technology major provides theoretical depth in spatial concepts and analysis and technology application. Once you understand the power of spatial data analysis, you can combine that perspective with anything you want!
