Geographic Information Systems Certificate


Return to Degree/Certificate Programs Return to: Degree/Certificate Programs

Students may obtain either the one-year certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), or the Associate of Science in GIS. Additionally, students in many fields may obtain a minor concentration (equivalent to the certificate curriculum) in the course of obtaining their associate’s degree.

The certificate program is designed for persons wishing to obtain GIS training in order to enhance their academic degree or current career choice.

Students seeking either the certificate or the associate of science degree must complete a minimum of 32 credits in the major requirements listed. These 32 credits are split between the categories of basic skills, core requirements, and area of expertise. Consideration toward satisfying some of the requirements will be given to students entering the program who have had documented work experience, equivalent course work at another institution, or completion of workshops from recognized providers such as ESRI. Students should consult with their advisor early in the application process to determine eligibility of previous work. Students wanting credit for work experience or workshop participation will be asked to supply a portfolio of work which will be evaluated by program faculty.
