What Makes the P.S.M. in Ocean Food Systems Unique?
Focus on oceans
UNE is offering the first food systems P.S.M. in the U.S. that is focused on the marine space. As a student, you'll pursue meaningful solutions to real-world challenges across ocean food systems — in fisheries and aquaculture, seafood trade and production, and marine governance and policy.
UNE has established partnerships with businesses from across the ocean foods industry. For your master's project, you will have the opportunity to collaborate closely with industry partners, gaining first-hand experience in their category and building long-term relationships.
Your focus during this 12-month program will be a customized master’s project. After two-week team residencies in Iceland and Maine, and a course on research techniques, you'll begin intensive work on your project, staying in touch with your class through weekly meetings and lectures from thought leaders.
