Develop proficiency in data science and programming tools with the Geospatial Data Science Certificate in Temple University’s College of Liberal Arts.


The Geospatial Data Science Certificate from Temple University is designed for data science professionals seeking to enhance their geospatial analysis skills and for current graduate students in public health, sociology and environmental science programs. It can also serve as a gateway to the Geospatial Data Science Professional Science Master’s. 

Drawing on computer science, engineering, math, spatial science and statistics, the certificate’s coursework explores geographic analysis, solutions that help advance science and society, and solutions to location-based problems. You’ll study big data handling, data mining, geospatial analytics and machine learning, as well as core data science competencies and industry-standard tools.


Geospatial data science is an emerging field. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts faster-than-average job growth for cartographers and photogrammetrists—both careers that leverage geospatial data science. Graduates are prepared for jobs in technology-based sectors, government and nonprofit organizations. They are prepared to pursue careers in the following areas.

  • Agriculture
