What will I learn?

The professional master of geographic information science (MGIS), administered by the Department of Geography, provides graduate-level work in the theory, applications, and technology of geographic information science (GIS). Courses for the program are divided into three broad categories. Core courses provide the conceptual and theoretical underpinnings for a comprehensive, well-rounded knowledge of GIS, including an introductory seminar for entering students (GIS 8501). A set of technology courses focuses on specific software and techniques of GIS. Elective courses provide additional breadth to the program by allowing students to take courses related to their area of interest.

The College of Liberal Arts (CLA) prepares students to become independent and original thinkers, innovators in their chosen fields, creators of meaning in their lives and in their life’s work, and productive citizens and leaders in their communities and the world. Our broad range of studies and engagement experiences provides you with an extraordinary wealth of opportunities to expand, experiment, and explore.
