Marine Resource Management Graduate Certificate (CERT)

Print Version Print
College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences


The management of our marine resources encompass both biophysical and human dimensions. Marine management professionals need to understand these dimensions, utilizing both physical and social sciences to tackle challenging issues, and effectively communicate best management practices to scientists, decision makers, and stakeholders.

The Marine Resource Management graduate certificate offers a blend of science- and management-oriented courses that prepare participants (professionals, decision-makers, and graduate students) to become leaders in marine resource management.
