Geographic Information Science Master of Science

The Master of Science degree program in Geographic Information Science (MSGISc) began in 1999. The Geography Department faculty recognized the emerging importance of geographic information science and the importance of integrating advanced study in geographic information systems, remote sensing, and global positioning systems with traditional studies in human, cultural, and physical geography. The master's of science degree complements our existing graduate degree offerings.  

The degree program is 48 credit hours and includes satisfactory completion of a culminating capstone project.
