Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing for Social and Environmental Sciences

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing are considered essential tools to spatially explore, analyze, visualize and disseminate data; and these skills are increasingly highly sought after in the workplace. The MSc in Applied Geospatial Analysis will provide you with strong theoretical, conceptual and practical foundation on spatial analytics, covering legislative requirements and ethical considerations. The aim of the programme is to provide you with the skillset for real-world spatial exploration of social, economic and environmental patterns and interactions in support of evidence-based planning and decision-making. It will afford you the opportunity to apply acquired skills in pragmatic contextual settings.

Programme Outcomes

At the end of the programme, you will have practical and applied GIS/remote sensing skills for problem-solving; and knowledge and understanding of tools, methods, and applications within geographic research and practice, across a range of disciplines and work areas. The programme includes guest speakers from research and industry, exposing you to potential internship and career opportunities in the area. The core modules will place a large emphasis on practical hands-on skill building on GIS/remote sensing, applied to real-world case-study analysis. A range of optional modules will provide the flexibility to shape learning to your own research or career needs. All optional modules will have an applied geospatial analysis component.

Careers & Employability

This programme will provide you with a practical and applied GIS/remote sensing abilities as well as a range of academic and transferable skills that will be a benefit in many careers. Graduates of this programme may progress to doctoral study or to careers in:

  • Evironmental and planning consultancies
  • Government departments and local authorities
  • State and semi-state agencies (e.g. Central Statisitics Office, Environmental Protection Agency, Ordnance Survey of Ireland)
  • Industry (e.g. ESRI, Google)
  • Think tanks and research bodies
