Graduate Certificate Program in Geographic Information Science

Students taking a selected subset of courses for the online Master's degree may earn a graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Science. This option is appropriate for students seeking advanced coursework but who do not wish to pursue a Master's degree.  Students take four required courses (12 credit hours) and choose one elective (3 credit hours). By taking one course in five of the six terms in a year, students may earn the graduate certificate in one year.
