Through the curriculum, you’ll prepare to enter the geographic information systems workforce. Geographic information is increasingly prevalent in everyday life through the growth of the civilian global positioning system, interest in computational and analytical tools used to study it, and mobile and fixed platforms for reporting locational information. This growth fuels demand for well-trained practitioners of geospatial technology in science and the social sciences, as well as in a variety of professional fields. Department faculty have expertise across GIS applications such as business, geovisualization, environment, health, location analysis, urban planning and remote sensing.
The Geographic Information Systems Certificate from Temple University prepares students to take on advanced research positions in technology-based companies, governmental agencies and non-profit organizations. The program’s elective courses allow students to specialize in the areas of their professional or academic interests.
