GIS Certificate Program - Courses

This program consists of 4 core courses, a minimum of 1 elective and an independent capstone project. You will need to complete a minimum of 16 credits while in the program. You may transfer in 4 credits of required coursework taken previously (approval needed if taken at another institution)..

The 2-credit capstone project tailored to individual backgrounds and interests. We welcome work-related projects by students who are presently employed. The capstone project can be taken any semester but should be taken in conjunction with or after taking G578 (Applications of GIS).

Please note: Students entering in the spring semester in even years (2014, 2016) may need three semesters to complete coursework since the Geog 578 is not offered in the fall of even years and requires Geog 377 as a prerequisite.

No certificate courses are offered in the summer.
