Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

The Bachelor of Science in Environmental Spatial Analysis is a blend of both education and preparation designed to produce graduates with skills that meet workforce needs in the Geospatial Science and Technology field with little or no further preparation by employers. The Environmental Spatial Analysis (ESA) degree is composed of a focused curriculum built around advanced Geographic Science and Technology and includes the opportunity for students to focus their learning experience through directed elective coursework in computing and information technology, earth systems, engineering, environmental science, environmental studies, geoscience, and other areas.

  • Fulfill all UNG policies and graduation requirements.
  • Grades of C or higher are required for all GISC and ENVE courses and all courses used as Directed Electives of the focus area.
  • These courses should be completed in core areas or as electives: GISC 2011/L, ENST 2030 and MATH 1401 or MATH 3350.
  • ENGR 1101 may substitute for ENVE 1103 and ENGR 1770 may substitute for ENVE 2771K.
  • Students that have previously completed a bachelor’s degree or higher should meet with the Director of the Institute for Environmental Spatial Analysis (IESA) to discuss the academic requirements for completing the ESA degree program. Students with a B.S. degree or higher may possibly apply courses taken at another institution but not offered by UNG. Some of these courses may be substituted for courses in one of the focus areas. These substitutions must be approved by the academic adviser and the IESA Director.
