Master of Science (Mineral and Energy Economics) / Business Administration - Máster en Ciencias / Management (Economía y Energía Minera)
The Master of Marine Science & Management (MMSM) is a 12 to 18 month full-time program depending on the grant of Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and is normally taken as a 72 Unit of Credit (UoC) program, full-time or part-time. The program can be taken in 48 UoC (1 year full-time equivalent) subject to RPL (e.g. a Bachelor of Science (Honours) or equivalent industry experience).
The Program is aimed at both domestic and international students interested in the interdisciplinary field of marine science and management. Topics in marine science include coastal management and engineering, climate change, marine ecology and conservation, physical oceanography and modelling.
Completion of a recognized bachelor degree
Meet English requirements.
* Some programs have additional entry requirements, please contact UNSW for this information.
Knowledge: graduates will have in-depth knowledge of marine science, especially in the links among oceanography, climate and marine ecology - the hallmark of this program;
Critical thinking and problem solving: graduates will use a diversity of numerical and interpretative skills relevant to marine science and management and environmental science, tailored to interests and specialization by selecting their electives from specialty areas of other partner universities.
The seminar series from DPI-Fisheries and Office Environment & Heritage staff and the session on recreational fishing will provide students with knowledge of policy, government and industry.
Communication. Students will prepare reports and deliver lucid seminars to scientists and managers, and manage their style for the general public or schools.
Teamwork. Graduates in marine science will work together to find synergy and cross-disciplinary expertise.
