Description: 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. The Master of Marine Science and Management is a joint program between UNSW and three Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) partner universities. The capstone course (MSCI6681 Topics in Australian Marine Science) is a tutorial and seminar series jointly taught at SIMS at Chowder Bay, based around the analysis of data-streams from the Integrated Marine Observing System ( Students enrol in the program at UNSW, but complete 3 courses (18 UoC) at the partner universities.
