Geographic Information Systems Certificate
Program Goals Statement
Geographic Informational Systems (GIS) provides a powerful tool in any academic discipline to analyze relationships among data. It is commonly used in business, environmental, geographical, political, law enforcement, and social science applications.
This certificate introduces students to GIS and provides them with the skills necessary to layer various types of data in an electronic format and to study and identify relationships among the data.
This program serves as a solid base for continuing toward a degree with courses transferring to Bristol’s Environmental Technology program.
