Associate of Science
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) uses computer software to view, manage and analyze spatial relationships and model spatial processes. Students are expected to understand fundamental computer operations and concepts before enrolling in GIS courses.
NOVA students who enroll in the Associate of Science Degree with a Geospatial Specialization will develop a framework of knowledge in spatial analysis, cartography, information technology, database management and other disciplines supporting GIS. Students will gain hands-on experience through projects and will develop individual student GIS portfolios. This is a two year transferable degree.
