PhD (ISCED 2011 level 8)


Duración 6 semesters
Costo In-State $8,486.50; Out-State $17,293 per year

The Intercampus Marine Science (IMS) graduate program is fundamentally grounded in a broad, integrated approach to the study of marine sciences and related technologies. Offered at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Boston, Dartmouth, and Lowell, this degree helps you build a foundation in the natural and social sciences related to marine and coastal systems to prepare you for interdisciplinary studies and research focusing upon an area of concentration. Upon graduation, you’ll be ready for a career in academia as a researcher and scholar who will contribute to the application of your learnings in marine sciences, marine resource management, and marine economic development, or in the governmental or private sectors.


The PhD program includes four core courses taken by all students (12 credits), courses in a concentration area beyond the core, seminars, and dissertation research. Work in the concentration area includes a minimum of 24 credit hours of courses (which includes elective and seminar courses) and helps the student prepare for the written and oral candidacy examinations. All graduate courses approved by the student’s advisor count toward the credit requirement.

It is also required that students apply a minimum of 18 credit hours toward thesis research. The student must achieve an overall average of 3.0 in the PhD degree program. PhD students are not normally accepted as part-time students. Courses may be taken at any IMS-affiliated program on the four campuses, in other departments, or at other area institutions, and may be included in a student’s program of studies as determined by the student’s major advisor and/or dissertation committee.
