Applications are now open for Fall 2008 admission to the Master of
Marine and Environmental Science program at the University of the Virgin
Islands! From the MMES program's home page:

The Master of Marine and Environmental Science (MMES) degree provides
students with the training and skills necessary for planning,
conducting, and evaluating research in marine and environmental science.
Additionally, students explore how to utilize research to manage natural
resources, with a particular focus on the issues and challenges related
to natural resource management in the Caribbean region. The program
draws upon the expertise of faculty within several units of UVI, in
particular the Center for Marine and Environmental Studies and the
Division of Science and Mathematics. Further, it is a bridge between
academia and natural resource management sectors within the US Virgin
Islands, the greater Caribbean, and beyond. 

There are two tracks of study in the MMES program: a science based track
for those students who wish to focus on research, and a management based
track for those students who wish to focus on resource management
issues. The program structure allows students to become conversant in
the language of both research and resource management, and then to focus
on their area of particular interest. Graduates of the program are
prepared for a wide array of careers in academic, government,
non-profit, and private sectors.
