MS in Urban Spatial Analytics
Anyone who has used GoogleEarth or MapQuest or a GPS-based navigation system or GIS software understands the power and potential of spatial analysis. A recent U.S. Department of Labor study identified geospatial analysis as one of twelve fastest growing knowledge-based professional fields. The MUSA (Master of Urban Spatial Analytics) degree is a 9-month master’s program coupling spatial analysis skills—most notably Geographic Information Systems (GIS)—with substantive knowledge in an urban content area of the student’s choosing. Full or part-time options available, the MUSA program provides a diverse, unique opportunity for those interested in using spatial analysis for research or professional activites focused on urban issues.
