The Florida Museum of Natural History and University of Florida do not offer degrees in Herpetology. However, our permanent faculty/staff in the Division of Herpetology occasionally teach Herpetology-related courses in several departments at the University of Florida.

See the department's course catalog for if/when these courses are offered again.

Although there is no particular department a student must be enrolled in, students' home departments typically include the Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, Department of Zoology, College of Veterinary Medicine, Environmental Engineering Sciences, Department of Geological Sciences, and Natural Resources and the Environment. We suggest that you contact the University of Florida Admissions Office, as well as individual departments above for specific entry requirements.
