Is a Graduate Degree in Environmental Science for Me?

Environmental scientists study how human actions affect the environment and our quality of life. They work to understand, predict, and reduce human-caused impacts on the environment. At FAU, we focus on aquatic systems because of our proximity to the Everglades and coral reef ecosystems.

Careers in Environmental Science

Research Scientist at a National Park, Wildlife Management for a Water Management District, Environmental Planner for a county or municipality, Program Coordinator in non-governmental organizations, all tied to ongoing research, restoration, or management of some of our nation's most sensitive aquatic systems and species.
