Geospatial Intelligence (online) (Z135)
Graduate Certificate Program
College: Behavioral and Social Sciences
The Graduate Certificate in Professional Studies in Geospatial Intelligence (GCPS GEOINT) is dedicated to providing workforce-focused training at graduate level in ways that can nimbly respond to developments in what is often a rapidly shifting landscape of applied problem-sets, analysis schemes, big and growing data-sets, and software platforms that characterize today’s geospatial intelligence.
The GC GEOINT program entails 15 credits from five courses (GEOG661, GEOG662, GEOG697 and two elective courses). These courses cover spatial analysis, remote sensing, big data analytics, geovisualization, programming in web and mobile GIS, geospatial intelligence in various fields, etc.
The Master of Science in Geospatial Intelligence (MS GEOINT) is also offered, which entails 30 credits from 10 courses (five core and five elective courses). The credits earned from a GCPS GEOINT can be transferred towards the MPS GEOINT.
Teaching Assistantships are offered depending on availability and students' qualifications.
