Overview

This innovative degree is offered in partnership with the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS), the University of Technology Sydney, the University of New South Wales and the University of Sydney. This interdisciplinary and cross-institutional degree is unique in Australia, and gives you in-depth knowledge in a range of disciplines in marine science and management.

Study at up to three of the four participating universities. Students enrol at one of the partner universities where they complete six of eight subjects. Two of the remaining subjects can be chosen from a list of electives across all participating universities. The core subject involves a seminar series at the newly built teaching facilities at SIMS taught by leading Australian and international marine scientists. The unit culminates in a research project taking advantage of the Australian Integrated Marine Observing System database.

The Master of Marine Science and Management offers a unique opportunity for you to gain in-depth knowledge in a range of marine science and management disciplines including units in the science and management of coasts, marine ecology and conservation, coral reefs, climate change, oceanography (physical, geological and biological) and engineering (coastal and marine). This program has been developed in collaboration with the Sydney Institute of Marine Science and its partner universities.

This program is suitable if you seek a marine science qualification for entry into the field, or if you wish to gain new and specialised skills in a range of theoretical and practical applications to extend your area of expertise.

Sydney advantage
The coastal expertise at the University of Sydney is one of the best in Australia. We have international leaders in areas ranging from coastal science and management to coastal ecology and biology. We have a tropical research station in the Great Barrier Reef and several units of study that take place there.

Sydney is an outstanding location to undertake marine science and management studies, due to our extensive coastline, harbour and unique marine ecology. The Sydney Institute of Marine Science is located in recently refurbished heritage buildings by Sydney Harbour, with state-of-the-art laboratories and facilities. Some of the units of study will be taught there, including Topics in Australian Marine Science which provides a capstone experience by introducing you to the Integrated Marine Observing System, a national infrastructure facility that monitors the coastal and marine environment in Australia. You will work with data from the Integrated Marine Observing System to solve real-world problems and learn how to tackle multifaceted problems concerning our coasts and the ocean.

Program expectations
The aim of the program is to equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to work in the multidisciplinary field of marine science. You will gain both a theoretical understanding and applied skills to connect marine processes and the challenges that are associated with managing such a dynamic environment. Topics include coastal management, modelling, geographic information systems, ecological statistics, remotely sensed data analysis and marine and coastal law, amongst others. This will allow you to progress in your career, to refresh your skills or to undertake a career change.

This course is available to both domestic and international students, and will allow you to progress in your career, to refresh your skills or to undertake a career change.
