After testing the spatial visualization skills of undergraduate students in a variety of disciplines, the authors found that geology, fine arts, and physics students had the highest average spatial test scores even after controlling for gender and grade point average. The findings suggest that students can develop transferable geospatial skills; for instance, fine arts students may enhance their skills in this area while satisfying a general education requirement in the natural sciences. Alternatively, students could be discouraged from taking courses that build the same cognitive skills as their major courses, so that they are exposed to different ways of thinking or methods of analysis.
