The Department of Geosciences at Florida Atlantic University is housed on the Boca Raton campus and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in various subfields of the geosciences. The three main areas of focus in the department are earth systems science, human-environmental systems and geo-information science.  The Department offers B.A. and B.S. degrees in both Geography and Geology, a M.A. degree in Geography, a M.S. degree in Geology and a Ph.D. degree in Geosciences.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our programs, facilities and faculty. We are proud of the research specialties that we have developed in hydrogeology, paleontology and paleo-environments, human-environmental modeling, and urban and regional development. The Department places a strong emphasis on fieldwork, GIS, remote sensing and other analytical techniques in geospatial modeling, and encourages interdisciplinary research. We have strong relationships with the Center for Environmental Studies, the Environmental Science Program, the Department of Anthropology, the Department of Biological Sciences, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the Department of Civil Engineering and the Department of Urban and Regional Planning    


The intimate relationship of plants and people: Plants are at the core of every culture. In this talk, Maria Fadiman an Ethnobotanist and National Geographic Emergent Explorer, gracefully explains how people are connected to plants.
