Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

In geographic sciences courses and programs, students have the chance to explore the physical aspects of the planet and atmosphere, the effects of human activity, resource use and the technologies used in analyzing these aspects.

Geodesign goes beyond a traditional understanding of geography, therefore demanding a multidimensional view of the environment, including population changes, our consumption, and demand of resources, existing natural and manmade systems, climate changes and other factors. By integrating the principles of design and this expanded geographic perspective, Geodesign professionals develop solutions to our environmental crises as they affect our urban populations and the future of our planet. The MS in Geospatial Technology for Geodesign is a 36-credit post-professional degree open to those interested in GIS and/or the allied design disciplines: architecture, landscape architecture, planning, and engineering. Classes are offered on a full-time or part-time basis and are held in the evenings and Saturdays in order to meet the needs of our professional students. -
