Anyone who has used GoogleEarth or MapQuest or a GPS-based navigation system or GIS software understands the power and potential of spatial analysis. A recent U.S. Department of Labor study identified geospatial analysis as one of twelve fastest growing knowledge-based professional fields. The MUSA (Master of Urban Spatial Analytics) degree is a 12-month masters program coupling spatial analysis skills—most notably Geographic Information Systems (GIS)—with substantive knowledge in an urban content area of the student’s choosing.
- Five courses in spatial analysis and GIS
- Two courses in a selected urban content area
- One elective course
- One capstone project course
