The Professional Science Masters Program (PSM) in Marine Biology (conferred by the Department of Biology) provides the advanced skill set needed to pursue an entry–to mid-level career in marine research, or can serve as a springboard into the nation’s top Ph.D. programs in marine biology. This 15-month full-time program is offered in conjunction with Northeastern University’s Three Seas Program.
In addition to completing the Three Seas Program curriculum for graduate credit, students conduct additional coursework, a research project (but not a formal thesis), and a 6-month internship with academic research scientists, state and federal agencies, or private consulting firms. Now in its 8th year, the Marine Biology PSM Program has an impressive record: Our alumni routinely gain admission to the top Ph.D. programs in the country, publish quality research, and are leaders in their fields.
