Geographic Information Science (GIS) is a rapidly growing discipline, with applications in many fields. A strong demand exists for proficient users of geospatial technology. The undergraduate-level certificate program in GIS is designed to facilitate the learning of GIS by students working toward undergraduate degrees in Geosciences and in many other disciplines. The certificate program consists of five courses with a total of 17-19 credit hours.

Students interested in this certificate should contact the Undergraduate Director in Geosciences to enroll in the program. Courses that apply to a degree program in Geosciences also may be used in support of the certificate; however, only one course can be applied to two different certificates. Other electives for this certificate pending approval from the Undergraduate Director in Geosciences may include GEOG 4834 Applied Research in GIS, or options available through the Department of Computer Science for students interested in programming.
