Graduate Certificates

University of Maine

The graduate certificate program is designed to provide a foundation in key aspects of geographic information systems. The demand for specialists with geographic information system (GIS) and related geospatial information technology backgrounds continues to expand.

The Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems is available to those students who complete fifteen credits of required courses under the MS Spatial Informatics graduate degree program. All of the required courses should be available to the student through distance technologies at least once within any two-year period. If one of the courses has been waived due to previous course work or acquired skills, students are required to take an appropriate replacement course as specified by the graduate coordinator in consultation with the MSSI graduate faculty.
