The University of Arizona Geographic Information Systems Technology (UAGIST) master’s degree provides training for those seeking employment in the high growing geospatial industry.
Geographic information is used across a wide range of fields, from real estate and marketing to urban and environmental planning. That is why the US Department of Labor suggests that geographic information-related positions will grow by almost 30% over the next ten years, making this field one of the fastest growing in the United States. This comprehensive program trains students in the advanced skills to take up geographic-information related positions across the wide range of industries employing these professionals. The program is designed for students with both limited and advanced skills in geographic information science and technology. The program does not require a graduate record exam (GRE) and it can be completed with 18-months or over a longer-period of time through part-time enrollment.
