The University of Denver's school of professional and continuing studies, University College, and the Department of Geography are partnering to offer an online Master of Science in Geographic Information Science delivered entirely online for working adults.Additionally, University College offers a certificate of advanced study in GIS both online and on-site at the University of Denver campus. 


The application of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a strategic tool is increasingly used across many industries such as the management of natural resources, public utility management, public works engineering, environmental impact assessment, and even market research. The University of Denver’s GIS program prepares students to become leading GIS professionals in numerous industries.
GIS has the capability to store, retrieve and analyze spatial information. The valuable information is obtained by combining layers of data about a place to give you a better understanding of that locale. What layers of data you combine and the information they provide depends on your purpose—finding the best location for a new store, analyzing environmental damage, viewing similar crimes in a city to detect a pattern, and so on.
