Geospatial Analysis and Intelligence Certificate Program


Certificate Program in GEOINT accredited by USGIF!

The Geospatial Analysis and Intelligence (GAI) Certificate Program is an intensive, 21 credit-hour program of study open to all students. Students are provided with basic and then advanced skills in remote sensing, GIS, analytics, programming, spatial data management, and intelligence analysis. The full program of study is available both on-campus and online. The GAI Certificate course of study may also be used as an 18 credit-hour academic minor (without the GIS 411 course requirement) when incorporated into another major program of study and forms the foundation for the GIT concentration for the Bachelor’s of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies.
