Topics to be covered include components of GIS, spatial databases, data acquisition, reference frameworks, use of photographs and images, spatial analysis and graphic output design issues. The unit will highlight the importance of geographic information systems the unit will highlight the importance of geospatial positioning applications in society.
Northwest Missouri State University offers a Master of Science degree in Geographic Information Science. The program includes courses on modelling with GIS, Geostatics, Cartographic design, GIS database design and project management.
University at Buffalo:
The University at Buffalo offers a doctoral degree concentration in Geographic Information Science - an emerging interdisciplinary field that incorporates innovative research in environmental science, social science, information science, and engineering. The goal of the program is to prepare Ph.D. students with the interdisciplinary background and the technical, professional and personal skills needed for careers in Geographic Information Science. Students in the GI Science concentration at the University at Buffalo take a core of courses in GI Science, while also completing requirements for doctorates in any of the seven discipline-based departments.
GI Science students obtain research training through individualized faculty mentoring, and participate in active research programs under three broad themes: Geographic Information Science, Geographic Environmental Science, and Geographic Social Science. Students also gain a wealth of practical experience through internships, international opportunities, and participation in workshops, conferences, and fieldwork. By awarding degrees in traditional disciplines, while having an inherently interdisciplinary curriculum, the GI Science Concentration allows students to combine an innovative program of study suited to our rapidly changing world with the solid credentials of an established doctoral degree.
Curtin University of Technology:
Curtin offers a wide range of master and doctoral degrees by research. To qualify as a research degree, at least two-thirds of the required work for the award must be research. The award of a Master's (by Research) or a PhD indicates that a student has contributed substantially to the knowledge or understanding in a field, and is capable of carrying out independent research.
University of Dallas:
To receive the PhD in Geospatial Information Sciences, students must complete the Geospatial Science Core (15 SCH) to achieve a mastery of GI Science technologies and theory, have a Geospatial Specialization Area (15 SCH), have a Specific Application area or Technical field (12 SCH), evidence research skills through successful completion and defense of a Ph. D. dissertation, and take related electives as necessary for a total of 90 semester credit hours. In addition, students must satisfy a set of exams and qualifiers. Other courses may be substituted for those listed below with the written permission in advance of the Director of the GIS Doctoral program.
Geospatial Science Core (15 credit hours):
Geospatial Specialization Area (select from one, with a minimum of 15 credit hours):
Geospatial Computing and Information Management:

Remote Sensing and Satellite Technologies:
Customized Geospatial Specialization.
Identified by the student with approval in advance by the Director of the GIS Doctoral Program.
Application Area or Technical Field (12 SCH):
Twelve semester-credit hours of specialized course work in an application area or technical field relevant to GIScience. Normally, these will derive from the student's masters degree. These hours may be transferred from another institution, or taken at UTD in an existing master's program area and may be applied toward a master's in that area:
Technical field examples: statistics, computer science, software engineering, management information systems, image analysis, operations research, instrumentation, etc.
Research and Dissertation (24-48 credit hours which could include):
Ph.D. Research Project Qualifier:
All doctoral students must register for and complete GISciences PhD Research Project Qualifier. This requires completion, according to uniform guidelines established by the GIS program, of a GIS Research draft proposal and its evaluation by a committee of at least three GIS faculty, two of whom are chosen by the student with approval of the Director of the GIS Doctoral Program, and the third is appointed by the Director of the GIS Program and represents the program. The committee will judge the quality of the project as it exemplifies the student's potential to conduct original research (including their ability to define their research objective, survey literature, develop an appropriate design, etc) and the strength of the student's course record to date, and make a determination of the student's suitability to continue toward the PhD degree. The student must receive a PASS. If a FAIL is recorded, the course may be repeated one time only in the immediate following semester, including Summer. This course will normally be taken after the student has completed between 15 and 30 hours. A student must register for GISC 7389 in the semester immediately following the one in which he/she first accumulates 42 or more hours. GISC 7389 GIScience Research Project Qualifier can substitute for GISC 6389 GIScience Master's Project, but not the reverse unless a special petition is presented and granted.

Kingston University London:
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) MSc programmes:
Postgraduate GIS courses at Kingston:
There are two MSc programmes in Geographical Information Systems (GIS) at Kingston:
The two MSc programmes in GIS both operate within Kingston University's modular course system, each comprising eight taught modules and a research project. The courses have been designed to provide a flexible learning environment to suit all needs, whether you prefer face-to-face contact or are currently in employment and wish to take a non-contact course to study in your own time.
What does one study?
The MSc GIS programmes at Kingston University provide the high quality education needed to meet the needs of users of geotechnology or those seeking to enter a career in GIS. Students will gain a high level of competency in the principles of GI Science and the use of geotechnology; they will be able to routinely use professional software for data acquisition, handling, exploration and mapping.
Knowledge and skills in spatial analysis and spatial databases will provide students with the skills to develop GIS in addition to working with GIS in a range of environments for crime mapping, health analysis, hurricane prediction, 3d modelling and animation and many more.
The MSc GIS programmes have a number of key overarching features. You will:
Applied GIS option modules (choose three):

University of Gävle:
The bachelor's degree is attained after the student has completed the course requirements of 180 credits with particular focus decided by the individual college, of which at least 90 credits will be for gradual specialisation within the main area of study. To gain the Bachelor's degree the student shall, within the framework of the:
Technology (GIT) and mathematics:
Area of geomatics:
As a result of the course the student shall have developed the skill and ability to:
On completion of the course the student shall:
Main area Geomatics:
The programme consists of the main area Geomatics which is an internationally accepted co mprehensive term for individual academic disciplines concerning geographical information. These comprise: photogrammetry, geodesy, surveying, cartography, GIT and remote sensing. In GIT, GIS (geographical information systems) plays a central role as an effective tool. Courses in these disciplines are sometimes identical with courses in geography and spatial planning.
The programme concludes with a bachelor's thesis. In the thesis the student shall show that they can independently carry out a bigger project where they both show proof of the ability to integrate knowledge from the areas studied and to choose relevant methods for solving complex problems. Generally it is important that in the thesis knowledge from earlier studies is applied, broadened and deepened. Students shall show through their thesis that those goals for a basic university education as given in the Higher Education Act and the Bachelor's degree education as given in the Higher Education Ordinance and the special goals stated in this course of teaching have been achieved. Upon completion of the course the student should be able to take into account the human scientific and environmental demands when solving problems and developing programmes, and has the prerequisites to work for an environmentally adapted technology. The working methods that practice these abilities are therefore central to the programme.
