This program gives you the foundation you need to start a successful career in geographic sciences. You gain an understanding of the world of geographic sciences and the skills that are required. In the 1st year you learn the basics of geographic sciences, how to use geomatics tools and technology (e.g., Global Positioning Systems [GPS], Geographic Information Systems [GIS], remote sensing), and explore the individual disciplines and their interdependence. Throughout the 1st year, you get to know your strengths and interests and prepare to choose a concentration in your 2nd-year that focuses on a specific area of interest.
This program is located at NSCC's Centre of Geographic Sciences (COGS). COGS is the Lawrencetown site of Annapolis Valley Campus.
