MSC Applied GIS
Our MSc in Applied GIS will provide you with the mix of technical skills, practical experience and theoretical understanding you need to launch a successful career in the fields of GIS, applied policy research, or spatial data analysis. You'll develop a wide variety of knowledge, in areas such as advanced spatial analysis, geovisualisation , policy applications of GIS in practice, and thematic mapping and cartogram creation. The course has a strong applied emphasis and draws upon the extensive expertise of teaching staff in the Departments of Geography and Town and Regional Planning. This means that in addition to developing strong analytical and technical skills using GIS software, you'll be immersed in the practical applications of GIS and its potential to solve real world problems.
The MSc Applied GIS programme is delivered by two internationally-recognised centres of excellence in teaching and learning: the Department of Geography and the Department of Town and Regional Planning, conveniently housed in the same building.
