Delta State University Earns USGIF Collegiate Accreditation

Posted on August 15, 2019 with 0 comments

USGIF is pleased to announce Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss., has earned USGIF Collegiate Accreditation for its Geospatial Analysis and Intelligence (GAI) bachelor of applied science program. Delta State is the first undergraduate degree program to achieve USGIF accreditation, bringing the total number of colleges and universities the Foundation has accredited to 18.

The BAS-GAI degree can be earned on-campus or online and is offered through Delta State’s Center for Interdisciplinary Geospatial Information Technologies.

“Accreditation of our degree program signals the formal birth of a new academic discipline: Geospatial Analysis and Intelligence,” said Talbot Brooks, Director of Delta State’s Center for Interdisciplinary Geospatial Information Technologies. “GEOINT was bundled up under geography and related disciplines for too long and its emergence as a discipline is overdue. Seeking both regional and professional accreditation was a long and difficult path, but we are glad to be the first and are committed to forever being the best.”
