Mount Royal University's GIS courses are run through the Department of Environmental and Earth Science. GIS can be taken by any credit students. The GIS stream of courses provides students with basic background in mapping, cartography, and familiarity with Esri GIS products. Higher level courses encourage students to branch out in their GIS application experience as they tackle real problems through a Community Service Learning component. Students work with community partners and conduct needs analyses and GIS research to address local issues.
