Geospatial-Focused Programs Offered @ UA

B.A. in Landscape Assessment and Analysis – SNR

The strength of the Landscape Option is the application of computer-based technology to answer questions in natural resource and environmental planning and management. The Landscape Option offers students a tremendous breadth and depth of study in Geographic Information Science (GIS) and technology integrated with the study of natural resource management and conservation. The program prepares students for careers in information management, geospatial information technology, resource mapping, and environmental or conservation planning.

Graduate Certificate in GISSNR

The University of Arizona offers state-of-the-art training in GIS through courses and hands-on application through the School of Natural Resources and the Environment and the School of Geography and Development. This collaboration has produced a graduate certificate program in GIS for graduate students who wish to augment their graduate degrees, recent graduates who want more training before they enter the work world, and professionals who need to develop a new skill set or formalize their training in GIS.

MSc. Geographic Information Systems Technology – SGD

This one year Master’s program integrates GIScience, cutting-edge GISystems, and geospatial technology, with management skills for use in government, corporate, non-profit, and academic settings. This comprehensive program is designed to meet the important educational needs of working professionals seeking to improve their career standing as well as recent graduates seeking employment in the high-growth geospatial industries.

MSc. Planning – CALA

The Planning Program is located in the School of Landscape Architecture and Planning. The bringing together of these two professions presents exciting opportunities for us as we build on the traditional strengths of the Planning Program along with new opportunities in the college . By taking advantage of the design and landscape planning curriculum and our location in the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, we have introduced a design-based planning concentration along with highly regarded international/borderlands planning, environmental/healthy cities planning, and land use/community development.
