Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and "GeoSpatial" technologies provide a promising path for those who seek a technical career path.
U.S. News and World Report says "GeoSpatial is a Core Tool." For those interested in well-paying careers, here is some career information. One of the best ways to follow this career path is to complete the "skills certificate" in GIS. For more information on the certificate and courses to take, select the GIS link.
Students today are able to complete an associate degree in geography at Sierra College, or transfer to CSU's or UC campuses for a further degree, such as the bachelor's degree with a major or minor in Geography.
