General Overview of the MS in Spatial Informatics Program

The master-of-science degree in Spatial Informatics (MSSI) provides an “all e-learning” “all coursework” degree for place-bound students that desire strong theory, computational, analytical, policy and technical foundations in geographic information science and systems. As a general rule, students may view class videos and accomplish assignments at any time throughout a week in any of the offered program courses and have the weekly opportunity (or requirement) to participate in a one to two hour “live” discussion session at a mutually convenient time for distance class members prior to due dates for weekly assignments. The program focuses on advancing knowledge about spatial information particularly with respect to concepts needed in next-generation information systems. Emphasis is placed on developing novel concepts and methods in the broad field of geographic information science for storing, accessing, analyzing, and managing spatial data, and modeling, extracting, integrating, visualizing, and communicating geospatial information. Students build on foundations in computer science, mathematics, physics, geography, cognitive science, artificial intelligence, engineering and related fields to study spatiotemporal phenomena and design intelligent spatial information systems. Spatial Informatics may be viewed as a field of study merging knowledge drawn from geographic information science, information science, cognitive science, computer science and engineering. The program is designed to meet the growing demand in society for graduates with high-level geospatial technology skills and provide a path for women and men from diverse fields to rapidly transition to information system career paths by providing them with foundation graduate...

MASTER OF SCIENCE IN INFORMATION SECURITY & ASSURANCE - ONLINE

Cyber threats continue to increase, as do the opportunities for information security and assurance experts. More businesses are storing their data offsite in the cloud and more employees have remote access to systems and data. This provides some uncertainty, as does the use of non-sanctioned devices on company networks. Cybercrime is also a reality for large corporations, e-commerce companies, defense firms, and, of course, the federal government. Information security and assurance is an ever-changing quest that challenges professionals at each turn. Staying ahead of the threat requires up-to-the-moment knowledge, like the curriculum available here at Norwich University. The Norwich University Master of Science in Information Security & Assurance online program delivers a relevant overview of security standards and computer security models, as well as topics that cover effective technology, risk management, and analytics. Our goal is to reinforce your existing information security knowledge, while also supporting your needs for advanced study of the management skills necessary to implement an enterprise-wide information assurance program. If you are transitioning into the Information Security (IS) field or looking to enhance your IS-related skill set, Virtual Security Cloud Labs, a secure, hands-on cloud computing platform, will provide you the opportunity to work on real-world business scenarios using IS tools to prepare you for a demanding career in IS....

Map Out Your Future With an Online Masters in GIS!

Geospatial technologies affect almost every aspect of life, from navigating an unfamiliar neighborhood to tracking patterns of diseases in populations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, geospatial technologies is one of the three high-growth industries of the 21st century. That translates into big opportunity—and with an Elmhurst M.S. in GIS, you’ll be well-prepared to meet it.

Elmhurst has something most colleges don’t—a dedicated GIS server and access to professional Esri GIS software. So you’ll get something most students won’t: high-end processing power from a regular computer.

Curriculum

The master of science in geographic information systems at Elmhurst requires the successful completion of 10 courses for a total of 7.50 credits (30 semester hours). The program also fulfills the educational requirements of the GISP (certified GIS professional). The curriculum will develop geospatial skill sets in correlation with the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) as defined by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Geospatial Technologies Center of Excellence (Geo Tech Center). AGS 500 may be waived, per the program director's discretion, for the following students:... [-]
