LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Community College (LCC) and Michigan State University (MSU) have partnered to offer a transfer program that allows students to achieve both an Associate in Applied Science in Geospatial Technologies and a Bachelor of Science in Geographic Information Science within four years.
The new program, often referred to as “2+2,” will allow students to complete their first two years at LCC, earning an associate degree, then continue their next two years at MSU to achieve their bachelor’s degree. Classes within this program are available in fall, spring and summer semesters and all will seamlessly transfer from LCC to MSU.
Geospatial science is the use of information technology to understand people and systems, and how they affect and interact with their spaces or environments. Geospatial technology, like the digital mapping of these data, its analysis and its application, is used in a variety of industries ranging from retail to government.
It also has great salary ranges and is one of the fastest growing career fields nationally and locally. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, median pay for drafters is $55,000 and $65,000 for cartographers.
