Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are now used in fields such as urban planning, environmental monitoring, marketing, business and retail analytics, law enforcement, public health, disaster management, data journalism, and numerous other careers and professional fields.
In the Graduate GIS Certificate, students will learn to make maps, manipulate and query tabular data, work with GPS data, conduct spatial analysis, and propose, define, and implement GIS projects. Courses integrate lectures and hands-on exercises using ArcGIS at one of three specialized computer lab locations on campus.
The Graduate GIS Certificate Program requires 16 credit hours of instruction. It provides a broad education in GIS and serves as a basis for entry-level employment opportunities in the geotechnology industry. Four courses are required to complete the Graduate GIS Certificate:
