Environmental Remote Sensing & Spatial Analysis B.S.Offered by: Department of Earth Sciences The Bachelor of Science of Environmental Science (B.S.E.S.) is an interdisciplinary degree within the School of Science that is offered in partnership with the Department of Public Health and the School of Liberal Arts.
Why choose this program?
This program prepares students for graduate studies and for a variety of careers with emphasis on investigation of the environment by federal and state agencies, industry, and consulting firms. The program allows flexibility to accommodate the needs and interests of all students.
The B.S.E.S. degree goes beyond those students interested in improving our environment, but engages students who want a college experience and career that crosses traditional boundaries. Within the B.S.E.S. program, the Environmental Remote Sensing & Spatial Analysis concentration provides important tools for measurement, analysis, and modeling of environmental systems and their dynamic interaction with human impacts.
What will you learn?
The Environmental Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis concentration builds theoretical background and advanced knowledge in spatial analytical techniques using remote sensing (satellite and airborne sensors), geographic information system (GIS), and global positioning system (GPS) technologies. The concentration emphasizes integration of these technologies and their applications to problems of environmental modeling and analysis.
What will you do?
The Bachelor of Science in environmental spatial analysis (ESA) is designed to produce graduates with skills that meet the needs of employers in geospatial technology fields with little or no further training by employers. The ESA degree is composed of a focused curriculum built on a firm foundation in geographical information science (GIS) and supported by courses in remote sensing and information technology.
