About

Nova Southeastern University’s Master’s of Science (M.S.) in Marine Science provides you with an interdisciplinary approach to studying the earth’s oceans. This program offers opportunities for you to specialize your interests and conduct original research in areas such as biological and chemical oceanography, deep sea biology, sea level change, marine mammals, coastal dynamics, and more. 

Overview

Key facts:

  • As a graduate student at Nova Southeastern University’s Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography, you’ll have immersive learning experiences in laboratory and classroom settings, as well as on the field. Mangroves, coral reefs, tropical freshwater, beaches, and deep-water habitats are just a few miles away from campus, which means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to work hands-on in the environments that match your interests. Faculty provide specialized attention and teach using advanced tools, so you can be best prepared to dominate your educational and career goals. 
  • You’ll find that your NSU marine science professors are passionate about what they do. Their excitement comes from not only teaching, but from being active researchers in the field—pursuing scholarly interests in coral reef biology, deep-sea ecosystems, and ichthyology, to name a few.     
  • NSU’s Marine Science master program is a 36-credits program.
