Students in the Marine Resource Management (MRM) master's program are trained to bridge the gap between science and policy. MRM combines the scientific study of marine environments with the social, economic, legal, educational and political processes that govern human uses of marine and coastal resources. Review the list of MRM courses.
The mission of the MRM program is to foster cooperative discovery and to learn about the conservation and use of marine resources. Our strength lies in our core values and principles, which guide everything we do. Our students and faculty know this, and our alumni, located around the world, are eager ambassadors for the program.
The MRM program:
Our coursework is founded on core oceanography courses in CEOAS and includes courses in the natural sciences, the social sciences (including but not limited to marine law and policy, education, economics and culture).
We have five, flexible, interdependent areas of focus:
