The MSc, or Master of Science, is an internationally recognized academic degree that indicates proficiency and knowledge of a given topic or field. Most MSc programs take about four years to finish, after which some join the workforce while others continue on in the classroom.
Geographic sciences can include an education on the computational methods and data structures used to represent, analyze and process geographic information. In addition, geographic science students may have the opportunity to study Earth’s physical features.

Geodesign goes beyond a traditional understanding of geography, therefore demanding a multidimensional view of the environment, including population changes, our consumption, and demand of resources, existing natural and manmade systems, climate changes and other factors. By integrating the principles of design and this expanded geographic perspective, Geodesign professionals develop solutions to our environmental crises as they affect our urban populations and the future of our planet.
The MS in Geospatial Technology for Geodesign is a 36-credit post-professional degree open to those interested in GIS and/or the allied design disciplines: architecture, landscape architecture, planning, and engineering. Classes are offered on a full-time or part-time basis and are held in the evenings and Saturdays in order to meet the needs of our professional students....

Awarded the EIT Label in 2016
The EMerald Master programme was created to answer the urgent need expressed by the European Union to create a resource efficient Europe. As the EU recognised the importance of mineral and metal resources in our modern economy, it also realised that the raw materials industries were facing a critical skills shortage.
The EMerald Master programme aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the Master course will focus on two aspects:...

Map Out Your Future With an Online Masters in GIS!
Geospatial technologies affect almost every aspect of life, from navigating an unfamiliar neighborhood to tracking patterns of diseases in populations. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, geospatial technologies is one of the three high-growth industries of the 21st century. That translates into big opportunity—and with an Elmhurst M.S. in GIS, you’ll be well-prepared to meet it.
Elmhurst has something most colleges don’t—a dedicated GIS server and access to professional Esri GIS software. So you’ll get something most students won’t: high-end processing power from a regular computer.
The master of science in geographic information systems at Elmhurst requires the successful completion of 10 courses for a total of 7.50 credits (30 semester hours). The program also fulfills the educational requirements of the GISP (certified GIS professional). The curriculum will develop geospatial skill sets in correlation with the Geospatial Technology Competency Model (GTCM) as defined by the U.S. Department of Labor and the National Geospatial Technologies Center of Excellence (Geo Tech Center). AGS 500 may be waived, per the program director's discretion, for the following students:...

Masters of Science (MScs) in Geographic Sciences.
Our society is facing a number of key challenges, such as the sustainable use and management of the natural resources of our planet (water, soil, mineral resources and energy), and the protection of our population and infrastructure against the natural hazards (earthquakes, volcanic activity and climate change) that come with living on a dynamic planet.
For a geologist “global change” is a familiar topic, with a variety of facets. Our planet is an incredibly dynamic and perpetually changing system and unraveling it is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. To achieve this, a fundamental knowledge of the composition, structure, evolution and functioning of our planet is required....

Masters of Science (MScs) in Geographic Sciences. Remote Sensing and GIS
The importance of the spatial dimension in examining issues such as regional development, land use planning and environmental monitoring is widely recognized. In work of this kind, it is necessary to interrelate information derived from various sources such as census, maps, surveys, aerial photographs and satellite imagery, each of which may utilize a variety of methods for spatial referencing. The field of remote sensing deals with the science and technologies used to acquire aerial and satellite imagery, convert them into geographically located digital images and extract from them useful information about the surface including vegetation cover, the extent of urban areas and water bodies. ...
