Are you passionate about marine, coastal, and wetland environments? Are you concerned about the ethics that dictate how we interact with those environments? Do you consider yourself business-minded, decisive, and a strong communicator? Sounds to us like you’d be a great fit for the Marine Resources Management program here at Everglades.

What is Marine Resources Management?

Did you know that the United States once had nearly 400 million acres of wetlands before we started building infrastructure like buildings and roads? That number has, understandably, decreased quite a bit since then. Marine resource managers are committed to conserving and protecting the wetlands we do have, and the species that thrive within them, for years to come.

There are a vast amount of career options for graduates of the Marine Resource Management degree program. Many graduates find work in policy and government relations; others choose to conduct fieldwork or educate the public. Whatever career path you choose, a Marine Resources Management degree is brimming with potential.
