Environmental Education and Communication researchers at the University of Florida have expertise in theory, research and application. They represent a broad array of academic disciplines, including Agricultural Extension and Education, Botany, Communications, Education, Entomology, Food and Resource Economics, Forest Resources and Conservation, Latin American Studies, Parks and Recreation, Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, and Zoology. The EEC Certificate offers students official recognition for the study of Environmental Education and Communications in these diverse fields. The graduate certificate is directed by the Center for Environmental Education, a Type II Center at the University of Florida, and administered GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATIONS Center for Environmental Education by the Dean's office of the College of Agriculture.
