Monday, September 16, 2013

Responding to the growing industry need for workers trained in science, technology, communications and management, UMass Dartmouth’s School for Marine Science and Technology (SMAST) has introduced the Coastal and Ocean Administration, Science and Technology Professional Science Master’s degree (COAST-PSM).


This two-year, non-thesis Master’s program consists of interdisciplinary courses that enable students to interpret scientific information and integrate it in policy or management decisions. Students are required to do an internship in a company or organization that complements their course work during their last semester in the program. Completion of the program can take from 2-3 years, and courses are offered early and late in the day to accommodate working students.  Steven Lohrenz, dean of the SMAST, will be in San Diego Sept. 23-26 at Oceans13 MTS/IEEE to present details of the professional science master’s as a strategy to advance in one’s career.  Both SMAST Dean Steve Lohrenz and SMAST Associate Dean Lou Goodman will be available for one-on-one discussions about the PSM and other SMAST programs at Booth #842 in the Exhibit Hall.


The SMAST staff is eager to discuss how companies, government agencies and nonprofits can offer internships to COAST-PSM students, and provide guidance on course content and skills training that would serve their needs.
