This page provides links to syllabi of courses taught by scholars from a variety of institutions across the country. They were assembled as illustrations of how spatial thinking, spatial analysis and GIS are taught in undergraduate programs. If you have a syllabus that illustrates classroom applications of spatial thinking in your discipline, spatial@ucsb would welcome the opportunity to include it on this page.

Please submit these to Andrea Ballatore.
