the university of florida does not have a herpetology dept nor do they offer a degree in herpetology. i am at uf now and merely "specialize" in this field. as chris said previously, one can go anywhere and study herps, but to get a degree in herpetology is another story and not really necessary. i'll tell you from experience to go to the graduate school that offers the best stipend ($) to you. no one cares what university you got your degree at. many good herpetologists have come out of very small schools. you can work on whatever you want.
hope this clears things up.
