The University of Kentucky Department of Geography and New Maps Plus are excited to announce the opening of applications for the Master of Science in Digital Mapping! This new, completely online 30-credit MS degree is designed for students seeking advanced technical and theoretical training in a challenging and intensive digital mapping curriculum that emphasizes the acquisition of technical skills - coding, GIS, web development - while also preparing you to critically address the complexity of today's information ecosystem. The MS degree program now complements the previously available 11-credit online Graduate Certificate in Digital Mapping.

The Graduate Certificate (offered since 2015) is a sequence of three courses (MAP671, MAP672, and MAP673) that focus on online and open source mapping tools, JavaScript programming, and cartographic design for the web - the essentials of generating interactive web maps with free tools.

The Department of Geography at the University of Kentucky designed these Graduate Certificate and Master of Science degree programs in digital mapping with all levels of experience in mind. Whether you're new to open source software or an experienced GIS user, you will benefit from a truly unparalleled online learning experience developed by internationally renowned faculty in a top-ranked geography department. You will develop the technical skills and design fluency you need to make highly sophisticated web maps that are also elegant and impactful. Perhaps even more importantly, you will learn to think critically about the social dimensions of the maps you make and the
data from which you make them.

All classes run for 10 weeks and are offered during four seasonal terms starting in January, April, July, and October.

New Maps Plus is currently accepting applications for Fall 2018 and Winter/Spring 2019 starts. Prospective students should contact [email protected] for admission requirements.
