"For a position where I’m acting as the resident expert in my field, a specialized program that I could design to fit my career interests was crucial."
"I always wanted to be able to do more with GIS than what I was capable of at the time. I did some research and found that Wisconsin geography was well known and had just started the online program. Each course has built on the last one, which is really helpful since it reinforces what you just learned. "
"The program really broadened my skill set in GIS, particularly in web mapping and development."
"It provided me with the confidence and experience to tackle new and complicated projects and analyses. These are traits my team has recognized over time and I now believe myself to be a GIS resource for all types of projects and questions."
"Science Hall became a de facto second home for me and being surrounded by so many talented, welcoming students, faculty, and staff was something I still treasure."
"It is never too late to start learning."
