In 2013 US News and World Reports stated that many entry level jobs today and virtually all senior management and senior professional positions now require a master's degree. The Masters of Science in GIS Technology (MSGIST) degree offer opportunities to learn the skills needed in the spatial information technology workforce. The Professional GIST Certificate (PGIST) provides a way for professionals to sharpen their skills while drawing on the resources and knowledge of academic professionals.

The MSGIST is a 3 semester, 30 graduate credit hour program. The in-person degree begins in January and concludes in December. Classes are held Monday through Thursday evening from 6p until 9p at the main University of Arizona campus in Tucson.
The online program begins in August and concludes in the first summer session. Descriptions for each course can be found .
GIST601: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems and Technology I
This course combines an overview of the general principles of geographic information science and its relation to the nature and analytical use of spatial information in GIS software and technology. Students will apply the principles and science of GIST through a series of practical labs.
GIST602: Introduction to Geographic Information Systems and Technology II
This course focuses on providing students with an introduction to spatial statistics, spatial analysis and their application in GIS software, and GIS programming. Students will learn about descriptive spatial statistics, multivariate spatial statistics, and normality, how to analyze distribution, direction, orientation, clustering, spatial relationships and processes, and how to render analysis into cartographic form. GIS programming skills focus on calculating values needed for analyses, building models to perform repetitive tasks, and creating customized GIS interfaces.

Wetland Workshops for MS & HS Teachers
The U.S. Geological Surveyâs National Wetlands Research Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, Chadron State College in Chadron, Nebraska, NASA Ames Research Center, the U.S. Geological Surveyâs Western Geographic Science Center in Menlo Park, California, and the Romberg Tiburon Center for Environmental Studies of San Francisco State University are sponsoring a Free WETMAAP Workshop for Middle and High School Teachers.
The WETMAAP workshop will:
â¢ Explore the changes in wetlands and changing habitats of the San Francisco Bay
â¢ Introduce educators to wetland habitats, and functions and values
â¢ Introduce educators and students to wetland mapping, aerial photography, satellite imagery, topographic maps, and GIS technology
â¢ Assist educators with the integration of wetland issues, maps, and images into existing curriculum
â¢ Promote public awareness of wetland change issu…
