The Division of Science & Environmental Policy (SEP) is the administrative home for an array of academic degree programs, research laboratories, and community outreach programs.

All SEP programs provide outstanding opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students to learn how to use interdisciplinary science and technology to serve community needs.

SEP places a heavy emphasis on preparing students for rewarding careers and/or more advanced academic study in fields related to environmental resource assessment, management, and policy.

Faculty clusters provide particular strengths in marine and terrestrial biology/ecology, watershed science & hydrology, environmental science education, advanced technologies for geospatial data collection, analysis, and visualization, and molecular biology/genetics.

IfAME Launches Stereo-Video Transects Coast-wide

The faculty, staff, and students of the Institute for Applied Marine Ecology (IfAME) are this summer initiating coast-wide collection of stereo-video imagery using SCUBA. Imagery will be collected by SCUBA divers to study the habitat-utilization and distribution of fishes and selected invertebrates inside and out of the State’s MPA network. Trained research divers will conduct transects using dual HD video cameras. The stereo video allows for precise quantification of fish lengths. Stay tuned for more!
