This spring, my son changed his major to GIS. He almost did Geography, but I was able to convince him these computers are going to take off eventually and he needs to have something more modern. He’s finished up his first semester and he says he loves it. We’ll see!
I told him all that matters is he spends time on Python. I’ve already exposed him to it when his major was Biology, but I would wager it means even more for GIS. He starts some of these classes this fall so I can’t wait to see what they are teaching him at Arizona State’s School of Geographical Sciences & Urban Planning.
