Geographic Information Science BS and Geospatial Systems Engineering MS

The university allows the opportunity for high-achieving students to count a select number of graduate credits toward their undergraduate degree and thereby obtain a graduate degree at an accelerated pace. Students interested in the Fast Track in Geospatial Systems Engineering must meet the following application criteria:

  • Currently seeking a BS in Geographic Information Science at A&M-Corpus Christi.
  • Minimum of a 3.0 GPA in the last 60 SCH at the time of Fast Track application.
  • Classified as a Senior with successful completion of at least 90 SCH, including GISC 3421, GISC 3412, and GISC 3300.

Students accepted into the Fast Track program will be given permission to enroll in up to six hours of prescribed graduate courses during their last semester of undergraduate studies. The hours for these graduate courses will “double-count” toward both the undergraduate and graduate programs. The BS and MS degrees will be awarded sequentially (i.e., upon completion of each degree) and not simultaneously. Students will be allowed to continue enrollment in the graduate program upon successful completion of the undergraduate degree.
