I have recently switched into an Honours B.Sc. in Geology. I would like to get a second opinion on the potential applicability of studying Geomatics & Spatial Analysis in conjunction with the Geology specialization. I was previously enrolled in a chemistry degree so a great deal of my courses transfer to my new geology specialization. I have every required first year course except for "Introduction to Earth Materials". This has created a bottleneck in my course progression, figuratively speaking. I have room to fit another major into my degree. My tentative plan is to get a joint honours degree with a specialization in Geology and a major in Geomatics & Spatial Analysis. Geology Specialization: http://www.science.uottawa.ca/students-etudiants/ugrad/sequences/bsc-honours-spec-geology-120cr.html [Broken] Geomatics & Spatial Analysis Major: http://www.uottawa.ca/academic/info/regist/calendars/programs/1062.html I've heard that GIS are applied in a variety of industries involving geology and that many geologists are expected to know how to use the software. Would learning about GIS be worthwhile for a geologist? Would a Geomatics major make me seem unfocused? Should I just go for a minor in the subject instead? I would greatly appreciate advice regarding this prospect.
