Overview

Mission

Education through hands-on application of marine science, conservation and restoration technology.

More than 70% of earth is covered by the ocean, and at Florida Keys Community College (FKCC) we believe that you can’t really understand the ocean unless you experience it firsthand. That’s also why we believe there is no better place to learn about the marine environment than FKCC. At our institution the sea is your school and the Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico are your classrooms and labs. These pristine oceans and seas literally surround our campus providing unparalleled opportunities to study the only living barrier coral reef in North America. Our school is nestled within the heart of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and students will be immersed in one of the most ocean oriented communities in the world. Whether you’re interested in earning an AA degree in Marine/Aquatic Biology for transfer to a four-year institution (see below), or an AS degree in Marine Environmental Technology to enter a marine-related industry immediately (see below), FKCC can make it happen. Come experience island living and island learning at it finest.
