Professional Science Master's in GISci

Experiences provided by the faculty in the classroom, laboratory and field will prepare the student for internship opportunities.

Professional Science Master's in Geographic Information Sciences (PSM in GISci) is an interdisciplinary program designed to facilitate students' pursuit of an advanced degree with training in the Geographic Information Sciences, while simultaneously developing business skills highly valued by potential employers.

Experiences provided by the faculty in the classroom, laboratory and field will prepare the student for internship opportunities. Each experience will form a basis for the degree requirements of the program as well as for preparing the successful graduate to address the documented local and regional workforce needs in business, government and non-profit sectors.

Eastern Illinois University has a strong history in the Geographic Information Sciences. Program size facilitates the personal development of the student by encouraging student mentoring with faculty.

With many of our courses online, non-traditional students can obtain the degree as well.
