University of Miami: Professional Master of Science
Gaduate degree programs in Marine Science offered this Fall (2011) at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS): the Professional Master of Science (MPS).
The MPS is an innovative graduate degree at the University of Miami intended for students who seek advanced training in the marine science and conservation fields, as well as the development of workplace skills highly valued by employers. The MPS program prepares students for science careers in business, government, or non-profit organizations where employment demands are growing. The curriculum is structured to allow students to complete their degree in as little as 12 months, with the training and real-world experience necessary for employment in entry to mid-level positions in today’s professional job market.
The curriculum combines rigorous study in select areas of marine and atmospheric science with interdisciplinary coursework in business, public health, communications, law and other professional domains. In place of a research-based thesis, all MPS students complete a 3-6 month internship in a business, government, or public sector enterprise, where they learn to apply their skills in a “hands-on” setting. All MPS graduates must complete 30 credits, consisting of 24 credits of graduate coursework and 6 credits of internship training. Please be advised that this program is self-funded, and standard University of Miami tuition rates (i.e. per credit) apply.
The deadline for applications for the Fall semester is June 1, 2011. Tracks to be offered in the Fall 2011 include:
* Marine Mammal Science
