Environmental Science and Policy/Geographic Information Systems
The use of Geographic Information Systems has become standard for many environmental professionals. At the same time, environmental work remains one of the most popular and powerful applications of GIS investigations. To enable students to better exploit the complementary nature of the fields, we have eliminated the overlap between the MS in Environmental Science and Policy and the Graduate Certificate in GIS. This enables students to earn both the MS degree and the Graduate Certificate by completion of a total of 13 courses rather than the 15 courses that would be required to complete the programs separately.
