Intervene in the world, don’t just live in it. Make sense of space, don’t just occupy it. See depth, patterns and trends in geography; people, their movement and impact — all turned into data. Then lay it over the world to answer the big “why and where” questions. These are the questions and skills that Geographic Information Science (GIS) immerses you in.
With GIS, you won’t just change the world … you’ll build a new world.

Within the major there’s a lot of analytical thinking you have to do. You can put charts into maps all day, but understanding what the map represents is the biggest takeaway.

Prior to coming back to Rowan, I went into the military. I was a geospatial analyst. It was really nice to come here and integrate the education behind it.

GIS is such a broad field. Data is everywhere. If you’re willing to look for the patterns, it can answer a lot of interesting questions.

A lot of people think that GIS is only mapping. It allows you to get an insight on a lot of different cultures and people.
