We’re looking to nurture the next generation of leaders in sustainable ocean development with a one-of-a-kind program that positions you at the nexus of science, business, and policy in the North Atlantic. With the Professional Science Master's (P.S.M.) in Ocean Food Systems, you'll join the next generation of sustainability-minded leaders who will pioneer the development of sustainable ocean food systems in the “New North.” You’ll emerge with an entrepreneurial mindset, ready to advance your career. 

This 12-month degree program combines the strengths of these institutions to holistically examine ocean foods value chains in fisheries and aquaculture, and their interactions with marine governance, law, management, and policy.

Two 2-week intensives in Maine and Iceland bring you face to face with ocean food systems, industry partners, practitioners, and researchers, developing your awareness of shared chronic issues felt across the North Atlantic stemming from profound climatic and economic shifts.

You will earn a UNE degree while benefitting from the expertise of instructors, researchers, and industry professionals working on similar issues in North Atlantic countries, building skills and networks needed for success in the 21st century innovation economy. Courses, seminars, and workshops conducted by UNE, Akureyri, and Holar faculty via Global Classroom technologies deepen your understanding of shared ocean food systems issues and potential shared solutions.
