Designed by internationally recognised experts, our Master of Marine and Antarctic Science provides students with advanced instruction and training in emerging approaches and technologies in marine and Antarctic science. The course is designed to produce expertly trained scientists with an international perspective and research skills that are widely applicable. In particular, students of the Master program will develop an understanding of the roles the Southern Ocean and the Antarctic marine ecosystem in the global climate system.
This course has a flexible structure with numerous electives to choose from including:
Students are able to cross-credit study programs and may choose to take electives available at one of the 20 partner universities as well as undertake their research project in association with an IAI partner.
The Master of Environmental Governance (Oceans, Polar and Climate) is a new degree that offers a sophisticated, interdisciplinary and practical approach to understanding how global spaces and areas of common environmental concern are managed through law, public policy and other governance approaches.
A unique feature of the program of study is the combination of individually supervised, in-depth research, a work experience internship, and classroom-based learning. Each student completes a major supervised research paper (25% of the program), a one month work experience placement with a government or nongovernment organisation (25% of the program) and four traditional units that are offered through online or face-to-face learning. The core unit, Global Environmental Governance, is taught in an intensive format over one week.
