The Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation (CMBC) at Scripps
Institution of Oceanography announces an application deadline of 4 Feb
2008 for the Master of Advanced Studies in Marine Biodiversity and
Conservation. The multidisciplinary program will begin 30 June 2008, and
includes courses in natural, social, and information sciences; marine
policy, economics, and law; and training in important cultural and
communications skills. The well-rounded curriculum is designed for early
to mid-career professionals to prepare them to effectively work with
diverse stakeholders, complex solutions, and the interdisciplinary
science often involved in biodiversity and conservation efforts.
Students complete the degree in one calendar year. Courses and fieldwork
are led by professors from Scripps's CMBC, the UCSD departments of
economics, political science, and history, and the UCSD Graduate School
of International Relations and Pacific Studies. Students are formally
admitted through UCSD's Office of Graduate Studies. The World Wildlife
Fund, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Southwest
Fisheries Science Center, and other government and non-government
agencies enhance the program by providing special lectures and
discussions. No more than 14 master's students are admitted to the
program each year. It is possible to enroll in the 15 unit summer course
only. More information, including an online application, is available on
the web at www.mbc.ucsd.edu (Jane Weinzierl, (858) 822-2886,
