Abstract

This project evaluates Western Oregon’s University’s Geographic Information Science (GIS) minor, by comparing to other higher educational institutions GIS programs in Oregon, both private and public. The criteria for this evaluation included three parts. One, an analysis of the variety, and types of GIS certifications or degrees offered. Two, the total number of courses, and credits required for completion of these GIS programs. Three estimated GIS program cost of completion, and application requirements. Analysis indicates Western Oregon’s GIS minor compares with other Oregon universities credit completion requirements, but lacks variability in course selection, and a graduate level certificate option.
