Ecosystem-based Management of Marine Systems (MSc)

The Ecosystem-Based Management of Marine Systems MSc course is jointly organised and delivered by two internationally renowned organisations: The Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI) at the University of St Andrews and the Scottish Marine Institute at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) at Oban on the Scottish west coast.

Students study marine environments from the tropics to polar regions as integrated systems, exploring interconnections between the physical environment, biodiversity and the impacts of human activity and resource use.
