A cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better and a total of 18 credits from designated courses are required. Interested students should inquire in the Student Advising Office, AUP Building, Room 225.

Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
GIS is used to manage and analyze spatial data for a broad range of business and public uses. Public health offices study the spatial patterns of infectious disease outbreaks; market researchers study the demographics of areas before introducing a new product to an area; educators study geographic data to recommend building new schools or closing others. In short, if where is a critical component of a problem, GIS is critical for finding a solution. GIS is one of the 21 hot jobs for the 21st Century, according to U.S. News and World Report (1991).
