Geographic Information Systems, Certificate of Proficiency

Requirements

2020欧洲杯夺冠热门The Certificate of Proficiency in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) provides students with a focused program of study in the fundamentals required to succeed in a wide range of careers in geospatial science. GIS includes the hardware, software, and data required to capture, store, display, and analyze geographically referenced information. Students in the certificate program learn the theory and methodology of geospatial data collection, storage and management, interpretation, and visualization through courses in cartography, remote sensing, GIS theory and applications, and geospatial field methods. In directed class projects students apply geospatial data techniques to real-world problems while gaining firsthand experience in project design and management.

Mission Statement

The Department of Earth Science’s mission is to provide students with a dynamic educational experience that will prepare them for rewarding lives and careers in a large variety of professions in private industry, governmental agencies at all levels, non-governmental organizations, and education. Our department strives to create an inviting and safe learning environment for students from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of educational goals. We offer four bachelor’s degree programs (B.S. in Earth Science Education, B.S. in Environmental Science and Management, B.S. in Geography, and B.S. in Geology), an associate’s degree (A.S. in Physical Science), and two certificate programs (a certificate of proficiency in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and a certificate of completion in Water and Wastewater Operations). We have excellent laboratory and classroom facilities, but we also take pride in being able to offer opportunities for students to learn outside of the classroom with service learning projects, internships, field work, study abroad experiences, and through research collaborations with faculty. Research experiences offer opportunities for personalized mentorship by faculty and lead our students to become deeply involved with their discipline of study. Thus, our graduates are skilled and creative thinkers who are well-prepared to step into professions that contribute toward understanding and solving Earth, societal, and environmental challenges faced by communities here in Utah and worldwide. 

Depending on the specific degree and elective courses chosen, a graduate will gain particular expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Biogeography
  • Earth Science Education
  • Environmental Health
  • Environmental monitoring and sustainability
  • Environmental Science and Management
  • Geochemistry
  • Geographic Information Systems
  • Geologic hazards
  • Geomorphology
  • Human geography
  • Hydrology
  • Land use and water resource management
  • Paleoclimatology
  • Paleontology
  • Petrology
  • Pollution monitoring and prevention
  • Remote Sensing
  • Sedimentary Rocks and straitigraphy
  • Tectonics
  • Urban geography
  • Water treatment
  • Wetland Studies
