FAU Adds Two New Degrees

By: Gabriel Diaz

The jewel of Boca, Florida Atlantic University, has recently added two new degrees to their College of Science department.

The two new master’s degrees offered will be both a Master of Science degree in marine science and oceanography and a Bachelor of Arts degree in health sciences.

Both of these new degrees will give students the chance to work alongside professional researchers and engineers in FAU’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute satellite campus.

Considering the fact that FAU is a research institution, students will gain a hands-on understanding of coastal, nearshore and oceanographic science while they learn how to conduct independent research on a plethora of matters.

This master’s degree program will be equipped to prepare students for potential careers in research, education, government, private-sector consulting and nonprofit organizations, states the FAU News Desk.

The bachelor’s degree program in health sciences is designed for students interested in pursuing a career in healthcare.

“These new degree programs reflect our faculty’s strong commitment to meeting the needs of FAU students and the community at-large,” said Ata Sarajedini, dean of the Charles E. Schmidt College of Science.

The curriculum is looking to broaden students’ understanding of factors that both positively and negatively impact the healthcare system, patients, and practitioners.
