Doctor of Philosophy in Marine and Coastal Management and Science

The Marine and Coastal Management and Science (MCMS) PhD in the Department of Marine and Coastal Environmental Science is an interdisciplinary program that is firmly grounded in both the social and physical sciences. The MCMS PhD program encompasses the impacts and opportunities from the built environment and development, rigorous training in research methods and analytical procedures, and interdisciplinary approaches to research and learning—with a focus on coastal and marine near-shore environments, where problems at the interface of the natural and built-environment are most pronounced. Through their interdisciplinary training, MCMS graduates will have a multitude of options for employment, ranging from academic and research institutions, government, industry, consulting, to non-governmental organizations.
