Geographic Information System (GIS)
GIS is a rapidly growing technology used to capture, store, manipulate, analyze, and display all types of geographic information on the Earth's surface.
Because of its broad applications, the GIS Certificate is open to ALL undergraduate students.
GIS is an essential skill for students anticipating employment in industries that use spatially-referenced data. Examples of fields that use GIS technologies include anthropologists, city planners, civil engineers, communication advertisers, environmental scientists, geographers, geologists, historians, political scientists, and social workers.
