The University of Denver's Master of Science in geographic information science (GISc), offered through the Department of Geography and the Environment, is designed for students interested in careers in geotechnology. The program provides in-depth study of geotechnological skills, including cartography, remote sensing, geographic information systems and global positioning systems. Digital solutions and data analysis are increasingly essential in the way we understand geography, cartography and how they relate to human activity. These systems can be used to gain insight into the patterns and trends that define our relationship to our environment.
Because the insight students can acquire through geographic information has important ramifications for policy and decision making, there may be a healthy job market for students upon graduation. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts demand for graduates with geotechnological skills will grow by 30 percent by 2024. Some of our recent graduates have found work in both private industry and government.
