In consultation with the faculty advisor, students select four electives from a wide array of courses in cartography, GIS, remote sensing, and spatial analysis. It is recommended that students who are interested in advanced programming take GUS 8066 Application Development for Geographic Information Systems as one of their four electives.
The GIS Capstone course (GUS 9187) provides an experiential and industry-relevant learning experience for students matriculated in the GIS Professional Science Master’s program at Temple. Students engage in a structured internship experience (140 hours during the term) identified with the guidance of P.S.M. faculty at Temple and a prospective employer. The student completes a GIS-oriented project during the internship that draws on the GIS science and professional skills developed through the P.S.M. curriculum.
