The new Sydney Marine Science and Management Program offers a unique opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge in a range of marine science and management disciplines including units in the science and management of coasts, marine ecology and conservation, coral reefs, climate change, oceanography (physical, geological and biological) and engineering (coastal and marine). Study can be taken at the Master, Graduate Diploma, and Graduate Certificatelevels.
Developed in collaboration with the Sydney Institute of Marine Science, the University of Technology, Sydney, Macquarie University, and the University of New South Wales, the aim of the program is to equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in the multidisciplinary field of marine science. You will gain both a theoretical understanding and applied skills to connect marine processes and the challenges that are associated with managing such a dynamic environment.
Topics include coastal management, modelling, geographic information systems, ecological statistics, remotely sensed data analysis and environmental law amongst others. You will undertake core units at the University of Sydney, and have the opportunity to take elective units at one of our partner universities.
This program is suitable for you if you are a local or international student who seeks a marine science qualification for entry into the field, or if you wish to gain new and specialised skills in a range of theoretical and practical applications to extend your area of expertise.
