Geographic Information Systems and Science teaching and research are well-represented in the programs at all three campuses of the University of Toronto.

Geography and Planning at the St. George Campus offers a Minor in Geographic Information Systems which combines introductory GIS and Mapping courses with some more advanced 3rd and 4th year studies offering students the choice of branching out in different directions.



At the Mississauga Campus, the Department of Geography, Geomatics and Environment offers coursework using GIS in their regular BA and BSc programs, but also Major and Minor programs in Geographical Information Systems (GIS), which are closely integrated with the spectrum of Environment programs.



The Department of Human Geography at the Scarborough Campus offers a Minor Program in Geographic Information Science providing introductory and advanced courses as part of its Cities Studies and Geography programs as well as to students from across the social, physical and earth science departments.



Graduate students may enroll in the Spatial Information Systems specialization, which includes: Remote Sensing; Geographic Information Systems; Simulation Modelling; Computer Cartography; Quantitative Methods, Spatial Statistics and Qualitative GIS. All three campuses are homes for faculty and research labs through which graduate studies may be pursued.
