The Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) will give you in-depth hands-on experience with data collection and management, spatial analysis, web development, and geovisualization and map design with software such as ArcGIS. This certificate can help support your master’s thesis research, or jumpstart a career in environmental resource management, urban planning, archaeology, geology, cartography and surveying, community advocacy, anthropology, social services, and many other fields. It can be completed in one academic year or spread out over two.
Who Should Apply?
An undergraduate BA or BS from an accredited four-year institution and a GPA minimum of 3.0 is required to apply for admission to the graduate certificate. Both students who are currently enrolled in a separate Master’s program (e.g. Biology, Critical GIS and Public Anthropology, History), and students who wish to only obtain the graduate Certificate are welcome to apply.
