Ne öğreneceğim?

Geographic Information Science is the academic theory behind the development, use, and application of geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing, data visualization, global positioning systems, spatial analysis, and quantitative methods. The goal of this program is to provide a solid foundation in Geographic Information Science and to explore application areas that utilize this technology. The curriculum is a combination of core courses that teach the fundamental theory of geospatial technology and electives that cover the vast range of this burgeoning technology in disciplines such as computer science, management information systems, various field methods techniques, applications in natural sciences (e.g. environmental science, geology, and oceanography) and quantitative analysis. The graduate certificate in Geographic Information Science provides a mixture of theory and practical expertise. The Geographic Information Science certificate is designed to serve: 1) students who wish to acquire technical expertise to support knowledge gained in other graduate programs and 2) returning students who wish to acquire knowledge and expertise to further their current and/or future job requirements. At the end of the program, students will employ a balanced combination of theory of spatial concepts and practical application of Geographic Information Science techniques to spatial problems in their own field of study.

Certificate Requirements (18 credit hours)

The program requires 18 credit hours. Given that the goal for the certificate program is to provide students with a balanced theoretical and applied education in Geographic Information Science, the curriculum consists of 9 core, or Geographic Information Science theory, credit hours and 9 elective, or applied, credit hours.
