Surf’s up in Jacksonville, Fla., home of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway, St. Johns River and the University of North Florida! UNF’s proximity to such diverse bodies of water makes it an ideal location for the Coastal Biology program, one of our six Flagship Programs.
More than a typical marine biology program, Coastal Biology gives UNF students the opportunity to work directly on research with professors, grow corals, study marine mammal life in UNF’s necropsy lab (the only necropsy lab between Miami and North Carolina) and tag sharks. That’s why we feel confident in saying that at UNF, every week is shark week.
Being a Flagship Program for UNF means that Coastal Biology, along with the other five Flagships, has been elevated as stand-outs among other programs as the best of the best. These programs receive significantly more funding, resources and attention because they have reached a level of national prominence in both scholarly study and research.
Other Flagship Programs include International Business, Transportation and Logistics, Nursing, Nutrition and Dietetics and Music. All of these programs have received impressive accolades throughout the years. Most recently, UNF’s Transportation and Logistics program was recognized as leading the nation in the number of graduates achieving the highest level of internationally recognized professional certification and 80 percent of T&L graduates have a job offer in the field within three months.
