Geographic Information Systems
Be prepared to join the growing field of geographic information systems and develop the skills needed to collect and analyze geographic data. From foundational spatial data processing to the latest trends in the industry such as using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), you'll explore GIS technology, tools and strategy. Take the opportunity to learn to solve real-world issues with the use of GIS, whether you're analyzing crime patterns, assessing environmental damage or scouting commercial building opportunities.
You'll have the opportunity to demonstrate the skills you gain by planning and executing a GIS project, receiving hands-on guidance each step of the way. You can earn your MS in information and communications technology with a concentration in geographic information systems entirely online or in the evenings on campus through the University of Denver's University College. Beyond the coursework dedicated to GIS, you also can choose electives from other IT areas, including security, project management and programming.
