About

The M.S. program in Environmental Science and Policy is designed for students who are seeking advanced studies in preparation for professional or academic careers in environmental fields or preparation to enter doctoral programs in environmental science or related fields.

Overview

The Society-Environment Interactions focus provides you with an in-depth understanding of the socio-cultural and political contexts in which specific environmental problems arise and are addressed. Popular conceptual frameworks in human-environment interaction, such as political ecology, sustainable development, and integrated ecosystem management, are applied to a range of environmental problems at the local, national and global scales. Contemporary policy challenges, such as the need to balance economic growth along Florida’s fragile coastline with the desire to preserve ecosystem services and wildlife habitat, are explored within historical, geographic and socio-political contexts. Graduates with the Society-Environment Interactions focus will be well prepared to make significant contributions to policy analysis and development in public agencies, private consulting firms, or non-profit institutions.
