Graduate courses carry numbers from 500 to 699 and 800 to 899. Advanced undergraduate courses numbered between 400 and 499 may be used to meet some graduate degree requirements when taken by graduate students. Courses below the 400 level may not. A graduate student may register for or audit these courses in order to make up deficiencies or to fill in gaps in previous education but not to meet requirements for an advanced degree.
- Determine when and how to use foundational geospatial information science & technology knowledge and cognitive processes, such as theories, methodologies, techniques, and ethics in the professional application of geospatial intelligence.
