Geospatial intelligence (GeoINT) is a rapidly emerging field that leverages human intelligence and geospatial technologies in the support of national security and other intelligence activities. This 15-credit-hour certificate is offered jointly by the College of Geosciences and the Bush School of Government and Public Service. The program develops the technical skill set, knowledge of intelligence processes, and critical thinking ability required of GeoINT practitioners. This certificate program has been designed to meet the growing demand for qualified individuals in the field.
The Certificate appears on an official Texas A&M University transcript. Courses in the program are taught by faculty in the Departments of Geography and International Affairs. Students complete two courses in the Department of Geography and two courses in the Department of International affairs, followed by a capstone learning experience. Its administrative home lies in the Department of Geography.
The program is approved for delivery via asynchronous distance education technology as well in residence.
