Marine Conservation (MCO)

The Professional Master Degree in Marine Conservation provides students with advanced training in both the theoretical aspects of marine science and conservation, as well as the practical aspects required to begin a career in this field. This degree track is unique in that students design a curriculum that emphasizes their personal goals and interests, while focusing on innovative solutions to current marine ecosystem and organism threats. The goal of the track is to advance conservation efforts, scientific literacy and communication, public outreach and integration, and education within the marine realm. Practical aspects of the program will vary between individuals but may include exposure to field methods and techniques, GIS and remote sensing of shallow water marine environments, the development of environmental impact statements, coastal law, the development of social media, scientific communication, and statistics for environmental management.

This program includes two semesters of coursework and a 3–6 month internship at one of a number of local federal agencies, institutions, and NGO’s, in which students apply both the theory and practical aspects of their training to real-world projects. University of Miami students from several disciplines, including science, communication, law, education and engineering, will have the opportunity to participate in exciting hands-on field and virtual learning experiences.
