Geographic Information Scientists have an ongoing concern with the collection, analysis and display of high precision spatial data. The Department of Geography (GEOG) and the Department of Computer Science (CSCI) are offering a joint undergraduate certificate in GIS and Computational Science.
The program draws upon faculty expertise in both departments, providing interdisciplinary training in spatial data analysis and computation, both of which characterize GIS in most career paths. Computational geospatial skills are in high demand on campus and in local, regional and national job markets such as government employment, industry or consulting careers, and graduate school. This certificate will be available to GEOG majors, to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in CSCI program managed through the College of Arts & Sciences, and to students in other earth science disciplines (e.g., GEOL, ENVS, ENVD, EBIO, ANTH) and social science disciplines (e.g., PSCI, ECON, SOCY). Non-matriculated students may enroll at CU through Continuing Education and once admitted, may apply for the certificate.
