Apply for a Graduate Minor in Environmental Remote Sensing
If you are enrolled in a non-GIS graduate degree program at NC State, you may earn a minor in Environmental Remote Sensing. Admission to this program is achieved by adding a GIS faculty member to your graduate committee and indicating the appropriate minor on your official plan of work. Please consult with your advisor and advisory committee where appropriate.
