When I reflect on my time in the George Mason University Geospatial Intelligence Certificate program, I find that the experience not only made me a better GI Science professional, but also prepared me in unpredictable ways for my career. Through intensive coursework with industry professionals and incredibly experienced academics, I was challenged to engage, communicate, and innovate in ways that enabled me to build strong foundational skills for a future in the geospatial intelligence tradecraft. I would recommend the Geospatial Intelligence Certificate program to anyone looking for a challenging yet rewarding experience in the field of GI Science.
