Taught in partnership with the NSU Abraham S. Fischler School of Education, The master of science in education with a specialization in environmental education focuses on the complex relationship of human society to the natural and built environment. This specialization helps educators to foster and impart the interdisciplinary knowledge, values, attitudes, and commitment needed to understand and resolve environmental issues. Course content recognizes that environmental educators may work in diverse settings.
Coursework in the environmental education specialization is conducted entirely online and at an accelerated pace using a cohort model. Students from various geographic areas are grouped together, depending on their term start, and progress through the six-week program modules together. This approach allows students to receive and submit coursework and interact with participants and professors via the Internet. This distance delivery option allows busy professionals to complete their degree without having to leave their jobs or travel long distances.
The Mission of the Oceanographic Center is to carry out innovative, basic and applied research and to provide high-quality graduate and undergraduate education in a broad range of marine science and related disciplines.
