Program Overview
Cutting-edge GIS training prepares students
to apply geographic information systems
technology skills to solve real-world problems.
Whether you’re determining the best location
for a new store, analyzing environmental
damage, or viewing similar crimes in a city to
detect a pattern, GIS plays a vital role in today’s
toughest spatial challenges. GIS students
receive applied instruction from professional
practitioners who work in the fields they teach
as they learn to plan, implement, and execute
a geographic information systems project and
learn skills in GPS, remote sensing, internet
mapping, or digital image processing. Students
will explore GIS fundamentals at a very hands-
on, applied level necessary to succeed in the
field, plus learn the contextual background of
GIS.
From the management of natural resources
to public utility management, public works
engineering, environmental impact assessment,
and even market research, students will learn
the diverse fundamentals of each topic within the
GIS industry and gain an insider’s perspective to
specific fields as they each relate to geographic
information systems. University College offers
the region’s first complete graduate certificate
program in geographic information systems.
Since the advent of GIS over 50 years ago,
Colorado has become “Geotech Alley” leading
the nation in GIS activity and development.
This master’s degree and graduate certificate
program is highly regarded due to its curriculum
and faculty, state-of-the-art labs, and the fact
that the skills and strategies you learn in class
are immediately applicable.
Geographic Information Systems Outcomes
This program prepares students to:


Understand the nature of geographic data
• Recognize appropriate applications of GIS technology to solve spatial problems
• Apply GIS technology to solve real-world problems
• Plan, implement, and execute a GIS project
• Design and implement processes and content in organizations to meet the description
of organizational excellence, which includes strong leadership
• Students will take the first half of the degree by taking classes online or on campus in the evenings
through the University College graduate certificate program in Geographic Information Systems
• Students will then take the second half of the program exclusively online through the Department
of Geography and the Environment’s MS in Geographic Information Science
How It Works
Students will first apply to the graduate certificate in Geographic Information Systems at University
College (universitycollege.du.edu). Once they complete the graduate certificate coursework and
qualify to become a master’s candidate for the MSGISc program, students may apply to the
Department of Geography and the Environment.
How to Apply
Students must meet two of the following three admission criteria to be considered for acceptance
into the online MS-GIS program:
1. Undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 or better
2. A grade point average of 3.5 in the University College GIS certificate program
3. A minimum combined score of 300 on the Graduate Records Examination (GRE)
Degree Admission
• Online students will use a virtual lab
• 24-seat GIS instructional lab
• 16-seat advanced GIS lab
• A remote sensing lab
• A GPS lab
• An Esri site license with Esri software products
• Current licenses for Trimble Pathfinder Office, ERDAS Imagine, ENVI,
and other GIS and image processing software
• Trimble mapping-grade GPS receivers
• A community GPS base station serving the Front Range of Colorado

Career Opportunities
Future GIS professionals will need to learn
to navigate and manage a culture of
change within the industry as geographic
information systems continue to evolve and
innovate, according to the 2013 industry
outlook by GeoPlace.com. A rising need
for professionals with technological and
management experience or education
is expected, as job−seekers need to
demonstrate a comprehensive range of skills
in this changing job market, from geographic
information systems to information and
communication technologies, project
management to leadership acumen.
