Society, infrastructure and economies are increasingly concentrated in the dynamic and complex region where earth, ocean, atmosphere and society interact. As a result there is increasing need to better understand coastal systems and to convey the best science available to support effective resource management. The Department of Coastal and Marine Systems Science offers two graduate degree options focused on these goals: the Ph.D. in Marine Science: Coastal and Marine Systems Science and the M.S. in Coastal Marine and Wetland Studies.

The undergraduate program toward the B.S. in Marine Science is offered through the Department of Marine Science.
