Geography or Information Technology? Report this article as Inappropriate to us !!!Login to Reply

I have been trying to get an answer to this question on this forum and elsewhere, but without success so far. And I need an answer soon. If one intends to study GIS at the graduate level, should he get a bachelor's in geography or information technology? I've been hearing both opinions. Universities definitely tend to treat GIS as a branch of geography. Yet I've heard (from someone who works in information technology but doesn't know much about GIS) that what I need to learn is programming, and that I can learn all the programming I need for this at any community college -- no need for a master's. Which side is closer to the truth?

Thank you all in advance for answering this.
