The online Graduate Certificate in Geospatial Intelligence requires 16 units of graduate work and provides state-of-the-art training in some of the core geospatial technologies and the underlying scientific concepts and analytical methods that guide their design and use to solve a variety of human security problems and challenges.
The courses in this program are open to students living and/or working anywhere, including students at USC's Los Angeles, Orange County, Sacramento and Washington, D.C. centers. The certificate program can be completed in as few as two and no more than four semesters depending on the numbers of courses taken in each of the fall, spring and summer semesters. The graduate certificate program can serve as a possible "stepping stone" toward the geographic information science and technology master's degree program. Continuous enrollment, including summer, is required.
