Coastal and Ocean Administration, Science and Technology - Intercampus Marine Science Graduate Program

The University of Massachusetts Intercampus Marine Science (IMS) graduate program is an exceptional place to earn your advanced degree in marine sciences. We have developed a comprehensive, multidisciplinary program to match the complex, multidisciplinary nature of marine sciences. Students graduating from IMS (receive a joint degree from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell.

The Professional Science Masters (PSM) offers an opportunity for students who wish to pursue a non-thesis degree that focuses on science management. IMS now offers the Coastal and Ocean Administration, Science and Technology (COAST) track which blends a study of science with coursework in management, policy, or law. The COAST track also has a strong emphasis on writing and communication skills.

This unique combination will allow students to enter the workforce immediately as science professionals, working in organizations that specialize in the sciences. For those already in the workforce, the PSM is an excellent way to broaden their knowledge of both the science and business practices of their employer.
