Name: PCC Proposal to Establish a Master of Science in Geospatial Intelligence
Proposed: 11/30/2018

Proposal: The proposal is to establish a Master of Science in Geospatial Intelligence (MS GEOINT) to train a workforce for the expanding GEOINT industry in Maryland and the greater Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The proposed MS GEOINT program will replace the current Master of Professional Studies in GEOINT. The proposed MS GEOINT will have a STEM designation that allows international students a longer term (24 months) to work in the United States after graduation. The proposed MS GEOINT program encompasses a 30-credit (10 units of 3-credit courses) course structure comprising five core courses and five elective courses, which is unchanged from the current MPS GEOINT program.
