Applications are being accepted for Fall 2010 admission to the Master of
Marine and Environmental Science program at the University of the Virgin
Islands. The application deadline is March 15, 2010.
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.
