Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs

Graduate students in the ABE department have an opportunity to participate in several programs offered by other UF departments which provide coursework and research experience to complement their majors.

  • Hydrologic Sciences
    The academic cluster for graduate studies in Hydrologic Sciences is a unique interdisciplinary program designed to broaden the skills of science and engineering students who are interested in all aspects of water.
  • Climate Science Concentration
    The interdisciplinary concentration in climate science is for students seeking to better understand climate and climate change, as well as resulting impacts and societal responses.
  • Interdisciplinary Ecology
    The master's and doctoral degrees in Interdisciplinary Ecology promote interdisciplinary thinking in natural resources and the environment by combining (1) coursework in the basic and applied science of ecology and the social, political, and economic sciences with (2) competence in an approved program in one of these fields of study.
  • Particle Science and Technology
    PERC has established a COE Certificate in Particle Science & Technology, to provide students with tangible recognition of their research efforts in PS&T.
  • Biomedical Engineering
    This program allows a student to pursue a bachelor's degree in a related engineering field while also taking courses necessary for a master's degree in Biomedical Engineering.
  • Food Engineering
    The Ph.D. program in food science is a multidisciplinary program consisting of Food Chemistry/Biochemistry, Food Processing/Engineering, and Food Safety (Microbiology and Toxicology).
  • Wetlands Certificate
    The goal of the Interdisciplinary Concentration in Wetland Sciences (ICWS) is to establish a standard set of courses and activities that provrsnydeide graduate students knowledge and experience that complement their majors with preparation for wetland related careers.
