Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego announces a January 14, 2016 application deadline for the Master of Advanced Studies in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (MAS MBC) program.

The MAS MBC program equips students with the knowledge they need to improve conservation of marine biodiversity in the world's most diverse and threatened eco-regions. An innovative program curriculum focuses on development of local capacity and science-based management tools.

This 12-month intensive master's program is geared toward early- to mid-career professionals interested in marine conservation careers.

The multidisciplinary program will begin in June 2016 and includes courses in natural, social, and information sciences; marine policy, economics, and law; and training in important cultural and communications skills.

Courses and fieldwork for the MAS MBC program are led by professors from the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (CMBC) at Scripps Oceanography and from a variety of top-ranked departments at UC San Diego, including the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies and the Department of Economics, as well as Communications, Visual Arts, and others. Government agencies such as NOAA’s Southwest Fisheries Science Center and non-government agencies enhance the program by providing special lectures and discussions. No more than 20 students are admitted to the program each year.
