Becoming a Stetson Pre-Law Student

This course will introduce students to the geospatial aspects of various social and natural science phenomena and to different classes they can take to build their Geographic Information System skills. This course will also provide a demonstration of ArcGIS Pro software functionalities and guide the students to integrate geospatial learning within their discipline of interest. Students can leverage these tools to enhance their learning experience while at Stetson and make them ready for the job market where these skills are very much valued. As geospatial technology is a ubiquitous tool, students interested in any discipline can take advantage of this offering to orient themselves to the world of location intelligence.

Meets Tuesday through Friday, July 5-8, 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Instructor: Sven Smith, PhD, Associate Professor of Sociology
