Geographic Information System Crime Mapping & Analysis Minor

The interdisciplinary minor of GIS crime mapping and analysis is designed to serve students who want to use Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to transform crime-related information into actionable intelligence for officers in the field and for crime analysts in police agencies. 

The minor provides students with contemporary geospatial skills and essential criminal justice knowledge that can help them aggregate crime data, identify patterns and clusters, explore the relationship between crime and other types of datasets, and assess the effectiveness of crime- reduction strategies.

*Upon enrollment in the GIS for crime analysis minor, the requirement limiting CJ 1000 to criminal justice majors/minors will be waived for GEOG students.
