NEW Advanced Certificate in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation


The Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (CMBC) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in conjunction with the University of California, San Diego Extension's Office of Advanced Professional Education and Development Studies, is now offering an innovative new program-the Advanced Certificate in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (AC-MBC).


The AC-MBC program consists of an intensive nine-week summer course, which is based on the rigorous interdisciplinary lecture and lab sessions pursued by students in the Master of Advanced Studies (MAS) and PhD in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation programs. 


The unique certificate program equips professionals with the knowledge they need to improve conservation of marine biodiversity in the world's most diverse and threatened eco-regions through development of local capacity and science-based management tools. The AC-MBC program is designed to teach current and future professionals about marine ecosystems from the scientific, economic, and policy perspectives, as well as to provide important cultural and communications skills. 


The AC-MBC may be applied towards the MAS in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation. (For more information about the MAS program, visit: http://oaped.ucsd.edu/cmbc)


To apply for admission to the AC-MBC program, prospective candidates must submit:

*         an online application for certificate admission

*         one set of transcripts from each institution attended after high school

*         three letters of recommendation, and

*         a current résumé or CV


GRE/GMAT is not required.


To fill out the application, visit: https://extension.ucsd.edu/programs/applications/cmbc.


Applications are due March 15, 2005 and accepted candidates will be notified in late April. This certificate program is offered during the summer only.


It is strongly recommended that candidates have a minimum of three years of relevant work experience. International applicants must submit official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
