Welcome to the UWF Department of Environmental Studies Graduate Program. We offer a Masters in Environmental Science that will provide you with advanced research and education in earth and environmental sciences.
Departmental areas of concentration include:
The program includes a thesis and non-thesis option, both of which provide a foundation for employment in the private and public sectors of the environmental fields. In addition, the thesis option prepares students for advanced study leading to the doctoral degree.
We also offer a Certificate in Geographic Information Science to provide students and working professionals with the conceptual base and technical skills necessary to develop and manage GIS projects relating to environmental and socioeconomic applications.
Tanya Gallagher: Music and Science make a Sweet Duet
On most Sundays, you can find UWF graduate student Tanya Gallagher toting her guitar and singing her favorite Jack Johnson songs to the morning brunch crowd at one of Pensacola’s beach restaurants. Her folk-acoustic music style provides brunch go-ers the perfect environment.
Gallagher is one of more than 12,000 students that make up the growing student body at UWF. She received her bachelor’s degree in environmental science from UWF in May 2010 and is now working toward her master’s degree in environmental studies.
While doing her video interview, she joked, “I’d do much better if I could just sing it to you.”
