Notes:

All course offerings are tentative until publication of UTD's official Class Schedule for the corresponding semester, which should be consulted for additional detail and confirmation.

Students seeking the Certificate in GIS who do not take GIS Fundamentals/Intro to GIS, or do not transfer its equivalent from another institution, must take an additional topics course. No more than two transferred courses can be used to meet the Certificate or MGIS requirements. No more than 15 hours of course work taken as a "non-degree seeking" student may be applied later to a graduate degree. Students seeking two master's degrees (e.g. MGIS and MPA) must have at least 15 hours of coursework unique to each degree and not used for the other degree. All course work for the MGIS must be completed within one six year period with a  minimum GPA of 3.0. Course work for the Certificate must be completed within a three year period with a  minimum GPA of 3.0.

Prerequisites
bullet for GISC/POEC 6382 Applied GIS: GISC 6381 GIS Fundamentals/Intro to GIS is a pre-requisite. However, students who already have the equivalent knowledge (solid understanding of fundmental GIS concepts and knowledge of GIS software, preferably ArcGIS) may enroll with instructor permission. May also be taken concurrently with POEC 6381 with instructor permission.
bullet for GISC/POEC 6384 Spatial Aanlysis: GISC 6381 GIS Fundamentals/Intro to GIS is a pre-requisite but students who already have the equivalent knowledge (solid understanding of fundmental GIS concepts and knowledge of ArcGIS GIS software) may enroll with instructor permission.
bulletfor GISC 6387 GIS Workshop: POEC 6382 Applied GIS is a prerequisite. However, students who have yet to complete this course may be eligible to register for the workshop under the following conditions: (1) they posses existing, hands-on experience using ARCGIS or other professional GIS package extending significantly beyond the level attained in Introduction to GIS, and (2) they can identify a specific applied GIS project upon which they will work, and (3) they obtain permission of the instructor, and (4) they have taken GISC 6381 GIS Fundamentals/Intro to GIS or this has been formally waved
bulletfor GISC 7365/GEOS5326 Remote Sensing Digital Image Processing: GEOS 5325 Intro to Remote Sensing or equivalent, or permission of the instructor required.
bulletfor GEOS5328 Radar Remote Sensing: GEOS 5325 Intro to Remote Sensing or equivalent, or permission of the instructor required.
bulletfor GISC 7366/GEOS 5329 Applied  Remote Sensing: GEOS 5325 Intro to Remote Sensing or equivalent, or permission of the instructor required.
bulletfor GISC 6386 Urban and Environmental Applications of GIS/Remote Sensing : GEOS 5325 Intro to Remote Sensing or GISC 6381 GIS Fundamentals/Intro to GIS or equivalent, or permission of instructor  required
bulletfor MIS 6308 Systems Analysis and Project Management: MIS 6326 Database Management Systems or permission of instructor
bulletfor MIS 6326 Database Management Systems: MIS 6204 Info Tech. and MIS Fundamentals or permission of instructor
