The Program curriculum also addresses the applications of these tools in the fields of agriculture, archeology, astronomy, atmospheric sciences, geography, geology, hydrology, planetary sciences, renewable natural resources, and soil science.

The curriculum is supplemented by numerous research projects in both applied and basic aspects of remote sensing. To meet the diverse needs of students, two options are offered:

  • remote sensing sciences is intended to meet the demands of students from engineering and the sciences (e.g., Electrical and Computer Engineering; Atmospheric Sciences; Optical Science)
  • spatial analysis which is intended to meet the needs of students from disciplines that use remote sensing and geographic information systems as important tools in agriculture, natural resource management, or planning.

Department

The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs. GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines. The high value placed on interdisciplinary research and education is indicative of The University of Arizona’s enthusiasm and commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its faculty and students.

Courses include:

  • Fundamentals of Remote Sensing
  • Image Processing Laboratory for Remote Sensing
  • Remote Sensing for the Study of Planet Earth
  • Geographic Information Systems for Geography and Regional Development
  • Geographic Information Systems for Natural Resources

“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?”​
