Master of Advanced Study in Geographic Education - This flexible master’s degree program focuses on your needs and adapts the program’s assessments to maximize your learning experience. A master’s degree in geographic education (M.A.S.G.E.) will not only enhance your ability to teach this area of the social sciences, but also provide techniques for its integration into other subjects.
Master of Advanced Study in Geographic Information Systems - The M.A.S.-G.I.S. program is a compact one-year nonthesis degree program fostering advanced study in management and the use of G.I.S. technology in public and corporate environments. The degree meets important educational needs of working professionals and recent college graduates seeking to improve their career standing. The program provides a comprehensive professional degree that balances work in the theoretical aspects of G.I.S., the technical side of the discipline and the applications domain. Students are exposed to cutting edge technology, management theory and practice, and several societal dimensions associated with the application of G.I.S. technology. The courses are held in the evenings during the week, the curriculum is highly adaptable to the work environment, and a M.A.S.-G.I.S. degree is achievable in a one-year time period.
