Introduction The Master of Marine and Antarctic Science is a specialised coursework Masters program in the marine sciences which provides students with advanced instruction and training in emerging approaches and technologies. The course is designed to produce expertly trained scientists with international experience and research skills in marine science. MMarAntSc students will develop an understanding of the roles the marine ecosystem play in the global climate system. The MMarAntSc was developed as part of the International Antarctic Institute (IAI) and the UNESCO/Cousteau Ecotechnie Chair in Antarctic and Southern Ocean Environmental Sciences. The IAI is a multi-disciplinary consortium of international universities. MMarAntSc students are able to cross-credit study programs and may choose to take electives available at one of the twenty partner universities as well as undertake their research project in association with an IAI partner.
Objectives The course aims to facilitate the development of the following educational objectives: *Develop an understanding of marine science concepts across the breadth of marine science fields of study *Provide an understanding of and practise with the methodology and related scientific techniques used in the study ofmarine environments, including emerging ideas and technologies used in the collection and analysis of data. *Experience in the scientific method as it is practised by professional scientists. These experiences include exposure to the process of scholarly critique, collaboration and practical field operations.
Career Outcomes The course will provide the necessary training to undertake further research or employment in marine science.
