Professional Geographic Information Systems Technology (Certificate NDP)
The Professional Geographic Information Systems Technology (GIST) master’s degree and Professional Geographic Information Systems Technology (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona provides training for those seeking employment in the high growing geospatial industry. We offer two GIST options.
|Full-time Duration:||6 months|
|Starting in:||August, January|
|Tuition Fee:||$10,063 per semester|
We offer two GIST options at Professional Geographic Information Systems Technology (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona
- MSGIST – Masters of Science in GIS Technology – (in-person or fully online offering)
- Professional Geographic Information Systems Technology (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona – (fully online certificate)
Both options integrate GIScience, cutting-edge GISystems, and geospatial technology with management skills for use in government, corporate, nonprofit, and academic settings. The comprehensive curriculum is designed to meet the educational needs of working professionals seeking to improve their careers and for recent graduates seeking employment.
Graduate students in the School of Geography and Development (SGD) benefit from the broad range of faculty expertise and strong links to interdisciplinary research centers across campus. Our work spans the discipline, from physical geography (climate science, dendrochronology, remote sensing, spatial science), to human-environment (political ecology, water policy, climate change) to human geography (development, state theory). Our shared commitment to collaboration and community makes for a lively and engaged department.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”
