A certificate indicates mastery of a particular set of skills or that an individual has effectively completed predetermined coursework or passed a test on a given topic. Strong variation exists among certificate courses in terms of content, length and cost.

Students studying geographic sciences can learn about Earth, its landscapes, environments and people. They can also gain an understanding of the connection between people, communities and the natural world. Scholars may also explore the technology used for understanding such connections.

About Geography and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Geographers study the relationships among places, natural systems, society, and cultural activities and the interdependence of these from the spatial perspective. Geographers today are active in the examination and planning of our communities and the development of our human landscapes along with the study of global warming, deforestation, pollution, and a variety of other environmental quandaries. The Associate in Arts in Geography for Transfer (AA-T) is specifically designed to prepare you for transfer to a CSU geography program at the upper-division level. It may also be appropriate for transfer to other four-year institutions. To accomplish this goal, you will complete transferable lower-division courses in geography and related fields. As a geography major, you will be able to take most or all of your lower-division courses at CCSF before you transfer but should see a counselor confirm your program of study. Additional courses might be required to transfer to particular institutions. The GIS Certificate is for students who for their major or career need to develop in-depth knowledge of the fundamental concepts and practice of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and learn hands-on problem-solving skills doing real-world GIS application projects. Students will be able to apply this knowledge and hands-on skills to various fields including, but not limited to, planning, engineering, geography, criminology, real estate, biotech, public utilities, transportation, forestry, ecology, resource management, emergency response, business/marketing. Explore Potential Careers Studying Geography and GIS can lead to a variety of different jobs or career paths. Below are just some of the many options you will have.
