Our research-focused graduate degrees include the MS – Spatial Information Science and Engineering and PhD – Spatial Information Science and Engineering. Spatial informatics faculty members are highly respected internationally and engaged with students on wide ranging leading edge research endeavors.

We also offer the MS-Spatial Informatics available only through distance education and involves only coursework. Further, we offer a Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Systems that requires half the course work of the MS program. This program is offered on-campus as well as in entirety by distance methods.
