The Graduate School of Geography offers two paths through which to study geographic information science (GIS) at the master’s level:
- The Master’s in GIS program, offered in collaboration with the Department of Sustainability and Social Justice, which draws students from around the world.
- The Accelerated B.A./Master of Science Degree Program in GIS for qualified Clark undergraduates.
Master’s in Geographic Information Science (GIS)
Gain knowledge and skills in remote sensing, mapping, and analytics through our Master’s in Geographic Information Science (GIS) program, administered by Clark’s Graduate School of Geography, Sustainability and Social Justice (formerly IDCE) Department, and Clark Labs.
Accelerated B.A./Master of Science in Geographic Information Science (MS-GIS)
If you excel as an undergraduate student at Clark, consider applying for the Accelerated B.A./Master of Science Degree in Geographic Information Science (GIS), also known as the MS-GIS ADP.
This 12-credit program will enhance your spatial analytic skills through courses that integrate geospatial and time-series theory with practical application methods, and provides essential skills in four main areas:
- Geospatial modeling
- Conservation GIS
- Land change analysis
- Programming (R and Python)
The program is open to students who meet the prerequisites and GPA requirements; all undergraduate majors at Clark are welcome to apply. In recent years, students have typically come from undergraduate programs in geography, global environmental studies, economics, international development and social change, and environmental science.
