Course summary

Keen to delve deeply into the study of ocean and marine sciences with leading researchers, in state-of-the-art facilities and in some of the most beautiful and fascinating marine ecosystems in the world? 

The Master of Marine Science and Management is delivered from the University’s National Marine Science Centre teaching and research facility in Coffs Harbour, on the shores of the Solitary Islands Marine Park.

The curriculum is strongly influenced by the needs of industry and potential employers. It has both a theoretical and a practical focus, with field studies in a range of coastal and marine environments and a focus on sustainability and management. You will move between the classroom and the water as you study marine management and ecology, conservation and biodiversity, and strategies towards environmental sustainability and pollution mitigation.

Graduates may go on to become scientists, science communicators, policy makers across the private and public sectors, or to consider other fields connected with the marine environment.
