The UC Berkeley Graduate Certificate in Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) has been approved, and is up and running. This certificate will provide an academic structure for an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas around geospatial information and analysis.
Certificate students will not only participate in a cutting‐edge program and receive explicit recognition of specialization in GIST by virtue of the Graduate Certificate but will be well positioned to compete for the most desirable jobs in geospatial t echnology, both in academia and in industry.
Requirements include at least three courses, or a total of 90 hours of instruction, and earn a minimum grade of B, and participate in a GIST Roundtable (such as the geolunch series from the GIF). The full proposal detailing requirements can be found below. Please note that acceptable courses will be updated as new courses are offered.

NOTE: THIS CERTIFICATE IS FOR CURRENTLY ENROLLED GRADUATE STUDENTS AT UC BERKELEY. It is not a professional GIS certificate for non-students.
