Location is a fundamental attribute of all features. Professionals in a wide range of disciplines are utilizing GIS to collect, manage, and analyze geographic information for a deeper understanding of our world. In many careers, applied knowledge of geospatial technology has become a presumed prerequisite.
The University of North Georgia Certificate in Geographic Information Science is an upper division program that emphasizes theory while addressing real-world problems. Course material is tied closely to the geospatial industry. Participating students will gain valuable experience through internships, service projects, and research projects.
The certificate is designed to complement students who are pursuing or who already possess an associate degree or higher. Students will be prepared for entry-level positions as GIS technicians and/or transfer into competitive four-year degree programs.
