Director: John P. Wilson, PhD

The Graduate Certificate in Spatial Analytics requires 12 units of graduate work and provides doctoral students with an opportunity to learn about the fundamental guiding principles (i.e. spatial cognition, positioning, spatial representations and data models, map projections and datums, modifiable unit area problems, remote sensing, spatial analysis and modeling techniques and cartographic principles) and a series of rapidly evolving geospatial technologies that take advantage of the Cloud and the Web as well as advances in analytical techniques, modeling tools and online data sources.

Course Requirements

Twelve units of graduate work are required.


The courses in this program are open to students enrolled in any one of USC’s doctoral programs. The three courses that make up this graduate certificate provide a vibrant and evolving series of learning opportunities for doctoral students wishing to look at their own disciplines and potential research topics through a spatial lens.
