About

The Professional Science - Exploration Science program at University of Miami is the applied practice and study of field research using a variety of methods, technologies, and approaches to drive question-based scientific endeavors.

Overview

This field fosters scientific inquiry and the application of expedition skills within a context that acknowledges the cultural and ethical implications of exploration.

As scientific endeavors become more specialized, many projects require hundreds of hours of hands-on research. Exploration Science at University of Miami combines scientific research theory and field skills with an outreach and educational platform that allows the general public, young and old, to join University of Miami research scientists for experiential and virtual expeditions in ecological, oceanographic, aviation and diving research.

Utilizing new technologies to engage and educate the public, Exploration Science students will be involved in citizen science project design, exploration technology applications, and field-based skills training, while receiving essential background information on the history, ethics and risks related to exploration. Students will be able to tailor their degree to best fit their interests and goals and will be prepared to lead and conduct professional exploration initiatives and expeditions in a variety of environments.

Highlights

The Professional Science - Exploration Science degree prepares students for science careers in industry, government, and non-profit organizations, where employment demands are growing. MPS degrees were developed and implemented nationally in response to employer demands for well-rounded, highly trained employees with a breadth of knowledge and practical skills to address emerging environmental issues and improve the management of natural and cultural resources.
