USC Offers First USGIF-Accredited M.S. in Human Security & GEOINT

Posted on October 8, 2019 with 0 comments

The University of Southern California’s Spatial Sciences Institute has developed and is now offering the first USGIF-accredited Master of Science degree in Human Security and Geospatial Intelligence.

This newly accredited degree is in addition to USC’s Graduate Certificate in Geospatial Intelligence, which earned USGIF accreditation in 2015. USGIF presented the latest accreditation at its annual GEOINTegration Summit, which was held Sept. 27-28 in Herndon, Va.

“USC is the perfect example of how GEOINT certificate programs can mature, transform, and take on different dimensions—in this case by identifying and capitalizing on the value of human security in GEOINT,” said Dr. Camelia Kantor, USGIF’s Vice President of Academic Affairs. “Building upon a sustainably grown GEOINT Certificate program, USC aims to educate future leaders in location-based analytics by gathering and interpreting relevant data as well as creating and implementing actionable intelligence, all in support of human security.”
