MS in Data Science/Graduate Certificate in GIS


GW students participate in annual mapathon, where they sit around a table and geocode on their laptop.


The Data Science Program and the Department of Geography work in conjunction to offer a dual Master of Science in Data Science and Graduate Certificate in Geographical Information Systems (GIS).

The graduate certificate program helps students acquire the knowledge and skills to move directly from the classroom into the workplace as environmental scientists, civil engineers and public health officials in the public and private sectors.

The curriculum guides students through all aspects of GIS theory and practice, from the science of cartography to database design and geospatial modeling. 


Course Requirements

In addition to all requirements for the MS in Data Science, all requirements for the GIS certificate must be fulfilled.
