The Master of Science in Geographic Information Systems Management Program at Salisbury University is unique among all such programs. It provides a practical, hands-on educational experience that prepares students for a career in the administration of GIS, particularly in a public context. The program is a direct response to the increasing value in using GIS technology to allocate scarce resources in support of informed public policy decisions. The degree is designed to enhance the GIS proficiency of professionals working in government, business and non-profit organizations. With such proficiency these professionals are well equipped to integrate and apply this new technology in their respective fields.

With 100 percent of the program offered online, the program is designed to meet the needs of working professionals who did not acquire a GIS background as part of their primary training while they continue to hold their position in their chosen field.
