Why You Should Consider a GIST Degree if You Love to Travel

A geographic information science and technology degree can be a great option for those who love to travel, and want to continue to travel well into their working life.

Although there are jobs available working for the US government and law enforcement, graduates can also choose to work in transportation, surveying, and environmental site selection – three industries that all require a lot of traveling.

Salaries in the GIST field vary between $30,000 per year to $90,000 per year, and the market is currently growing at a fast rate.

This increasing demand is leading to many universities, such as the University of Southern California, offering online GIST programs that can be completed in under two years.
