Overview

Get A Master's Degree In Environmental And Informal Science Education?

The Environmental and Informal Science Education program of the Florida Institute of Technology includes graduate courses in science/environmental content, education, and research. This program is open to individuals with experience and/or interest in formal programs (i.e., schools) or non-formal/informal programs (e.g., programs delivered through nature/environmental centers, parks, zoos, aquaria, museums, media, online sites). Education coursework complements students’ previous educational experience.

Career Outlook

Science educators and environmental education officers teach people about the environment and help them understand the issues facing the natural world, alter their actions, and reduce their detrimental impact on the environment.

Informal science educators frequently find employment by government organizations, NGOs, and nonprofits.

Some graduates with the environmental education specialization have gone on to teach in K–12 schools, but most graduates in these specializations work as environmental education officers in education positions in programs in organizations such as:

  • Nature/environmental/marine centers
  • Parks
  • Zoos
  • Aquaria and marine education centers
  • Museums
  • Camps and 4-H clubs
  • Other non-formal/informal education providers

Those with enough experience have served as education directors.
