I'm looking into an MA in GIS. I never took any college-level math or computer science courses. I'm not great at math; I had a B average in high school. The program I'm looking at requires 1 semester of statistics and 2 semesters of calculus and analytical geometry, as well as knowledge of a programming language.
Coming from a political theory background and holding an MA in that field, would a 2 year MA in GIS be enough for potential employers?
Would acceptance in a graduate program be possible if the math and programming language prerequisites could be met at a community college, or are they looking more for computer science, math or geography majors?
Can someone just jump into calculus, analytical geometry or statistics with little background, or does one have to take a slew of other courses just to understand what's going on?
