Marine Sciences 4+1 B.S./M.S. Track

The UNE Marine Sciences 4+1 B.S./M.S. track allows you complete your undergraduate and master's degrees in a total of five years.

As a qualified UNE undergraduate, this track enables you to obtain the M.S. degree with the same requirements as the traditional M.S. in Marine Sciences program through an expedited process that begins during your senior year of undergraduate work.

You'll complete much of your master's coursework during your fourth year, while also working on your thesis project. Your fifth year will be spent finishing your research and writing your thesis.

To enroll in the program you must be an undergraduate at UNE with a 3.5 overall G.P.A., and a 3.5 G.P.A. in all math and science courses. You are not required to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) prior to enrollment. However, you must receive sponsorship from a faculty member in the Department of Marine Sciences who will serve as your thesis advisor, and you should begin conducting research on a project that will become your thesis project by your fourth year at UNE. You can declare your intent to enroll in the program as early as the second semester of your sophomore year or as late as the second semester of your junior year.

Application forms are available from prospective faculty advisors in the Department of Marine Sciences.
