The Certificate of Geographic Information Science (GIS) is designed for working professionals aspiring to leadership positions in the field and wishing to obtain a certificate of GIS specialization. The Program first requires two core courses that provide a student the theoretical underpinnings of GIS to make informed use of geographic technologies, followed by the selection of one of three tracks – Technician, Analyst and Developer – to gain the technical skills needed to construct and solve problems in the physical and social realms.

For traditional students, the GIS Certificate program prepares them to utilize GIS in their major areas of studies, while non-traditional students can take advantage of the GIS Certificate program to learn and/or upgrade their GIS knowledge and skills that are applicable and important to their professions.
