Marine Science Ph.D.

This degree is offered by the University of Massachusetts School of Marine Sciences.

The program is fundamentally grounded in a broad, integrated, interdisciplinary approach to the study of marine sciences and technology. Students are required to complete "core" courses selected from the natural and social sciences to equip them for interdisciplinary studies and research before focusing upon an area of concentration.

The program prepares students for employment opportunities in the private and governmental sectors and academia. Emphasis is placed on the education of researchers and scholars who will contribute not only to basic research but also to the application of that research in a coherent approach to resource management and economic development issues.
