Marine and coastal issues are technically and politically complex, involving many interests, perspectives and stakeholders. To deal effectively with these issues, marine resource managers need a broad-based background in both physical and social sciences. Graduates from the program are trained to bridge the gap between science and policy.
The Marine Resource Management program at Oregon State University offers two tracks, professional and a thesis. Professional track students develop a project and defend a report on that work, based on either an internship or a research project. Thesis track students are expected to produce a more extensive and rigorous piece of original work and analysis, and must meet additional requirements set by the Graduate School and advisor.
Our coursework is founded on the core oceanography courses in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences and designed to include courses in natural and social sciences, environmental law, policy, education, economics, ecology and management.
