Two to three years of graduate study, which will include original research and practical experience as a Teaching Assistant, are required to complete the Masters degree in Marine Science. Students must complete at least thirty semester hours of acceptable graduate work in marine science and related natural sciences. This includes six hours in a supporting natural science field outside of Marine Science, six hours of advanced graduate courses in Marine Science, and three core courses. All three core courses, which total twelve hours, must be completed for a Master's degree. (A minor, which is obligatory in every Master's degree program, consists of a minimum of six hours in supporting work outside the major program). The relative number of hours in the major or minor fields, as well as the nature of the supporting work, is determined in consultation with the graduate advisor. A thesis is required and will account for six hours of the total program. The Master's thesis shall be the product of original research.
