Marine Policy MMP ApplyInquire

The Marine Policy Program examines the economic, legal, political, and social aspects of the world ocean, the seabed, and the coastal zone. Students and faculty in the program analyze public issues regarding the law of the sea, ports and shipping, marine minerals, ocean and coastal zone management, fisheries, naval affairs, marine biotechnology, and the global environment, frequently making recommendations for policy at the regional, national, and international level.

The Master of Marine Policy prepares students for careers in research, management, and administration in marine-oriented government agencies, private associations, and business firms. For a few highly qualified students who already hold an advanced degree in marine policy or a related subject and who generally have some experience in policy research or management, the PhD in Marine (Policy) Studies is available.
