Format: Campus

Program Description:

Graduate programs in the SFRC lead to both masters and PhD degrees in many specializations related to natural resources. Graduate students who conduct research as part of their degree work directly with a faculty advisor to conceive, implement, analyze and interpret an advanced investigation in forest, natural resources, geospatial sciences or fisheries and aquatic sciences. Whether working in a laboratory, forest or aquatic setting, students hone their skills to become tomorrow’s scientists, resource managers and policy makers. Apply directly to the UF Graduate School and contact individual faculty members for consideration - students will not be admitted to the program without the commitment of a faculty advisor.
