Master of Science - Environmental Science (Thesis) at University of West Florida - Pensacola: Tuition: $13,854.00 USD/year (Scholarship Available)

Environmental science touches on many of the biggest challenges the world faces today. As a UWF environmental science master's student, students will gain an understanding about the complex relationships between mankind and the environment, drawing on a diverse range of disciplines.

With small classes and approachable faculty members, UWF offers students advanced research and educational opportunities like no other.

The program includes both thesis and non-thesis tracks. Both tracks provide a foundation for employment in the private and public sectors. In addition, the thesis track prepares students for advanced study leading to the doctoral degree. The majority of students who apply for an assistantship receive one. Other financial support is available. Internships are encouraged.

This track trains students in field, laboratory and computing techniques to investigate multiple components of the environmental sciences, including soil and sediment contaminant assessment, coastal and marine aquatic environments, coastal morphology, remote sensing, climate science and reconstruction, as well as geographic information science (GIS). The thesis track applies discipline content to real-world issues within the region and across the globe. Many of the thesis students publish their work in a peer-reviewed journal.

Research conducted by graduate students reflects the core specializations of the Department. Within each of these broad areas, there are numerous opportunities for students to pursue their interests in collaboration with faculty. To learn about specific research areas, prospective graduate students should review the research interests of the faculty, and the descriptions of current graduate research opportunities.
