Certificate in Geographic Information Sciences

Geographic Information Sciences is a multidisciplinary certificate that considers fundamental questions related to the use of geographic information systems (GIS). GIS is a computer-based mapping technology that visualizes, edits, manipulates and analyzes spatial data and imagery for decision-makers. GIS is an essential tool in understanding what is where; it is used in urban and regional design, marketing and industrial location, transportation, precision agriculture, forestry, environmental systems, engineering, emergency services, epidemiology, crime analysis, and utilities, among other applications. The certificate can be completed in class or online.

Students must earn a “B” or higher cumulative grade in all the required courses, with a “C” or higher grade in each course.
