We still have room in our fall geographic information systems courses at
UMaine at Machias.
A list of our fall courses is included below with links to learn more. Our
online GIS courses are hands-on, practical and very flexible. We strive to
make the online experience as much like in-person learning as possible.
Instructors are very accessible and responsive, and assignments allow you
to apply your new GIS skills to your specific needs and interests.
You are welcome to take courses individually or to pursue one of our
stackable programs, including certificates
<https://machias.edu/academics/certificates/gis-certificates/> and the B.S.
in Environmental GIS <https://machias.edu/environment/> program. We also
have an early college GIS certificate
<https://machias.edu/earlycollege/pathways/gis/> open to high school
juniors and seniors who want to get a jumpstart on their college career.
To enroll in an undergraduate course, simply give the UMM Registrar's
Office a call at 207-255-1214. For graduate courses, please call the
UMaine Registrar's office at 207-581-1290.
