The Science of Making Better Decisions

There is a high demand for graduates with geospatial backgrounds. In fact, geospatial jobs were recently listed among the top 100 best careers in the nation. The geospatial field is expanding rapidly—ten percent annually—leaving a projected shortfall of workers and the perfect opportunity for GIS graduates.

The GIS accelerated master’s program offers a course-work degree option. It is designed for highly motivated students who wish to be geospatial professionals immediately following graduation. You’ll be prepared for a GIS career across many disciplines, from demographics and epidemiology to law enforcement and public health.
