School is just too expensive, and more students are ready to get out into the world to make some money. This is especially true of those people who are currently pursuing geographic information systems (GIS) degrees.
The good news is that today, students can get a masters in GIS relatively quickly from well-respected colleges. USC is a good example of a well-respected school that's now offering a GIS degree to students who are willing to get things done quickly. What's more interesting? The school's offering this program entirely online.
