  For those interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in the social sciences of coastal and marine management (including coral reef management), the Human Dimensions of Marine and Coastal Ecosystems Program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst invites you to contact us.   
  The Program is enabled through a memorandum of understanding with NOAA’s National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science.  Its purpose is to assist federal, state, and local resource management agencies, programs, and NGOs seeking to include social science capacities within marine and coastal management frameworks.  Our website is www.umass.edu/hd
  Current funding is limited.  However, tuition waivers in the form of TAships are possible and funded research projects are a distinct possibility.    
  Students with natural science, social science, and other backgrounds are welcome.  There are no set classes for the program, though some core competencies are important.  One or two courses will be taken in each semester and will be chosen with faculty based in part on student interest.
