New Program in Marine & Environmental Science at the University of the
Virgin Islands


The University of the Virgin Islands' Division of Science and
Mathematics, the Center for Marine and Environmental Studies and the
Virgin Islands Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research
(VI-EPSCoR) are pleased to announce the launching a new Master of Marine
and Environmental Science (MMES) degree program. The two-year MMES will
offer two tracks of study: a science based track for those students who
wish to focus on research, and a management based for those who wish to
focus on resource management issues. Students in both tracks will enroll
in the same core courses during the first year of the program. The
purpose of these team-taught, hands-on courses is to provide a broad
base of knowledge and the tools needed to effectively conduct research
and manage natural resources for all participants. There will be a
strong emphasis on Caribbean ecology and environmental management, as
well as significant emphasis on problem solving skills applicable well
beyond the region. Students take additional elective courses and engage
in individual thesis research during the second year of study. Graduates
of the program will be qualified for academic, government, and private
sector positions in science and resource management at the local,
regional, and national levels. The Master of Science degree will be
offered through the Division of Science and Mathematics. For more

Applications for the Fall 2007 semester are now being accepted.
