Get Wet...Get Your Hands Dirty!

UWF undergraduate & graduate students engage in field school, exploring terrestrial & underwater worlds. These students defiantly know how to make a Splash! Truly diving into marine life.

Your next classes...

could be on Wall Street, Route 66, or even in Shanghai. To make a splash in this world, go big. Be bold. At the University of West Florida we thrive on doing, exploring, and jumping in (with both feet). In small classes taught by world-class (even world-renowned) professors, you can dive into more than 70 degrees - from Marine Biology to Fine Arts to Computer Engineering, and, oh, so much more. Ready to make your splash?
