Hands-on Application

Environmental Science graduate students participate in extensive field work in our salt marsh system, at an affiliated field station in the Bahamas, and a collaborative graduate program in Environmental Engineering. We also offer varied opportunities for student research and thesis work with faculty on topics such as coastal and sea floor landscape dynamics, GIS assessment and modeling, hydrology in cavernous and other areas, public environmental education, and more.
