Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is a highly valued workplace asset with industries increasingly needing GIS experts.
Flexible and adaptable, GIS can be used in a variety of different scenarios, to make evidence-based decisions, understand trends and analyze data, effectively communicate a message and visually tell a story. At Selkirk College, you can complete your four-year Bachelor's Degree in GIS as well as an Associate Certificate that allows you to bring GIS to your current workplace through a mix of online, distributed, and lab-based geomatics instruction.
