Answer:

The University of Pittsburgh's department of Geology and Environmental Science offers a two-year certificate in Geographic Information Systems (GIS), that is intended to be taken concurrently with another undergraduate degree. The program requires sixteen credits and it is recommended that students enroll no later than their junior year. A grade of "c" or higher in all courses is required for successful completion of the certificate, and students must register by filling out the appropriate form either with the Arts and Sciences Advising Center, or with Student Records.

The program includes two core courses, two elective courses, and an independent study project, which must include three to five GIS map layers, or at least two remote sensing datasets. The project can either be generated by the student, with consultation from faculty, or from projects already generated by faculty. A maximum of eight credits may be applied to both your certificate and your undergraduate degree.
