I have an interest in GIS and I am currently thinking about getting an undergraduate degree in either geography or planning and specializing or taking a GIS or geomatics option. I'm actually in university right now but I am not certain yet of a specific program that I want to study. I am just wondering about the kinds of job opportunities that are available for someone who has GIS experience. Are the wages pretty decent for entry level?
And do you need programming skills in order to move up the ladder or not? Is it possible to get into a senior type managerial position later on without programming experience?
Part of why I ask this is because I don't really have an interest in computer programming. I have taken some basic intro courses in high school and I didn't enjoy it that much. Right now I'm in the process of completing an intro GIS course in university and it seems like something that I may want to get into as a career.
