Online MS Geomatics, Forest Resources and Conservation (non-thesis)
The MS Geomatics concentration in the Forest Resources and Conservation degree requires a total of 30 credits, with 15 chosen from available Geomatics courses (“SUR” prefix) at the graduate level. The remaining 15 credits may be additional Geomatics courses or electives chosen from other programs at UF. For more information on course options, see Courses. Elective courses taken outside of the Geomatics program will have tuition rates set by the individual department or program offering the course.
The School of Forest Resources and Conservation (SFRC) is required to give a final examination to students as part of their MS graduation requirements. The examination format (e.g. written or oral), length, breadth, location, and subject matter will be determined by the Major Advisor plus an additional SFRC faculty member in concert with the student. The content will be centered on subject matter drawn from the student’s coursework. A second SFRC faculty member, to be identified by the Advisor and student working together, will be required to participate in the student’s examination. The examination should be taken during the last semester of enrollment, but no later than one month prior to the end of the term.
