If you want to study the ocean and its inhabitants, it makes sense to choose a school near water, right? One can’t get much closer than Nova Southeastern’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography. The 10-acre campus is nestled at the end of John U. Lloyd State Park directly on the entrance channel of Port Everglades, meaning the Atlantic Ocean is right there! (The flagship Fort Lauderdale campus is only 12 miles away.) Opportunities for hands-on experiences and research abound, from studying ecosystems through the National Coral Reef Institute to monitoring nests through the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation Program. There’s even shark tagging and tracking going on through the Guy Harvey Research Institute (named for the marine artist – an active supporter of conservation and biodiversity efforts). Undergrads receive a solid education in physical and life sciences. Graduate studies focus more on specific areas of interest, such as coastal zone management. The university aims to fit the needs of working professionals seeking to advance their careers by offering online options, part-time studies, and evening classes that meet once a week in a three-hour block.
