Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) Certificate Program

For several years, myriad fields of scientific inquiry have converged to create a new discipline: Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT). GEOINT has become a cornerstone of national security through its coordination of diverse methods of gathering and analyzing geographical data. The new GEOINT certificate, accredited by the United States Geospatial Intelligence Foundation (USGIF), prepares students by integrating critical thinking and problem-solving abilities with training in geographic information technologies and knowledge of human and physical geography. The GEOINT certificate equips students with the skills needed to confront and respond to challenges relating to natural disasters, humanitarian crises and military operations.
