Description

Programme overview The Department of Geography, Environment and Development Studies offers an advanced and flexible Postgraduate Certificate in Geographic Information Science (GISc) for professionals and researchers who work with (or those who wish to work with) geographically referenced data. The course covers the philosophical, scientific, social, policy, environmental and technological issues associated with the use of geographic information in an international context, building on the department’s experience in teaching GISc at the postgraduate level for over 20 years. This course will introduce you to the principles and applications of GISc at an advanced level through the development of scientific knowledge, technical expertise and practical experience. You will develop the relevant theoretical background knowledge and a conceptual understanding of GISc, as well as an appreciation of the social and political context of geographical data and the implications of its use. The emphasis throughout this course is on enabling you to develop new skills that have real-world applications for your work and career.
