Geographic Information Systems Certificate

The GIS certificate program contains four courses at its core:

  • GEO 450/550: Introduction to GIS
  • GEO 555: Environmental Remote Sensing
  • GEO 560 Advanced GIS Applications
  • GEO 598: GIS Capstone

Students may take one or two other courses relating to distinctive areas of concentration of their choice.  These courses can be existing University of Dayton courses that provide additional background knowledge to GIS usage, or GIS-specific courses that can be developed later with collaboration from other departments.
