Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are now an essential tool in urban and regional planning. GIS allows creating accurate maps and analyzing development patterns. Planning students can obtain a GIS certificate by taking four GIS courses in the Department of GeoSciences during their coursework. Students who pursue the Geographic Information Systems Certificate need 39-40 semester hours.
