The Master of Marine Science and Management is for graduates who want to learn marine science at an advanced level in an interdisciplinary context. It is a joint program between UNSW and three Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) partner universities.

The program addresses new approaches to marine science by using information systems and remotely sensed data analysis. It also covers the impact and use of marine science on legislation and management in marine and coastal zones.

Learn in a Dedicated Facility

Depending on where your interests lie, you could be examining coastal management and engineering, climate change, marine ecology and conservation, or physical oceanography and modelling. Compulsory courses are taught at the SIMS facility at Chowder Bay.

The Master of Marine Science and Management is taught in the UNSW School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Science (BEES), (in partnership with three Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS) universities) which spans the biological sciences, geosciences and related cross-disciplinary areas.

BEES is one of the largest schools at UNSW, offering a unique grouping of disciplines within Australian universities.
