A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.

In a natural sciences academic program, many branches of the field might be explored in depth with the goal of observing and learning about nature. Some of these branches may include astronomy, biology, physics, ecology and chemistry.

Even though my attend distant learning classes online, several universities hold commencement at several locations. You could even stop taking classes for many weeks during the year without withdrawing and without throwing your student loans into repayment. That is a strong argument many people look at when enrolling in distance learning classes.

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. -
