Applications of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) range from business planning and public health to ecosystem management. Essentially, GIS is a tool for studying spatial problems. It links a database with map features in such a way that users can input, store, retrieve, and analyze geographic data. Students choosing this program acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to apply GIS in their chosen field of study.
The GIS Certificate is earned by taking two GIS courses and the completion of a GIS internship or undergraduate research project.
Not open to geography majors.
