 UC Santa Cruz: Coastal Science and Policy Program

This new program will select the best 10 candidates from anywhere in the world. I’d like to see the program filled with the best future conservation leaders from high biodiversity countries who are already working with effective conservation organizations. The program will offer financial support for tuition and living expenses based on financial need and program resources. Please forward this announcement to prospective candidates.

The MS program emphasizes international diversity, entrepreneurship and data-driven action to achieve conservation at scale. The curriculum incorporates experience-based learning, hands-on research, and a deep understanding of the multifaceted problems that face coastal systems. In addition to their rigorous coursework, students will take on an internship during their first summer, as well as conduct their own capstone projects during their second year of study. Linking academic researchers and graduate students directly with conservation, business, and policy practitioners provides dual immersion in the academic and practitioner cultures and contexts and, ultimately, the ability to work fluidly across the science-practice interface.

Applications for the first cohort opened October 1, 2018.
