Fleming, VIU ink agreement on new pathway to Master’s Degree

July 4, 2016

Graduates of Fleming College’s GIS graduate certificate programs will now be able to enter the second year of Vancouver Island University’s Master of GIS Applications program, thanks to a new MOU between the two institutions. The Master’s degree allows for more career mobility in institutional and governmental positions, explained VIU MGISA Program Coordinator Paul Zandbergen. “This pathway is extremely attractive to students as it reduces the time required to complete a graduate degree by one year,” added Fleming Principal Linda Skilton. “We believe this will pave the way for other universities to consider pursuing similar agreements with colleges.” NationTalk | Fleming
