About the program

The P.S.M. in Ocean Food Systems is a 12-month degree program where you will holistically examine ocean foods value chains in fisheries and aquaculture, seafood trade, and interact with marine governance, law, management, and policy. You will earn a UNE degree while benefitting from the expertise of instructors, researchers, and industry professionals throughout the North Atlantic. The unique program features team-building two-week residencies in Iceland and Maine where students, faculty, and industry partners identify local to global connections and challenges to study as P.S.M. projects.


Program Update

Thank you for your interest in the University of New England and our graduate Professional Science Masters (P.S.M.) program in Ocean Food Systems. We appreciate and applaud your ongoing interest in the important field of sustainable ocean food systems.

Due to unanticipated internal leadership changes, the P.S.M. in Ocean Food Systems has made the difficult decision to refrain from admitting a class for the 2022–2023 academic year. Therefore, we will not be accepting applications for admission this cycle.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this development may cause. We expect to resume admissions to the program in 2023 and would welcome your application at that time. If you have questions or would like to speak with someone directly regarding this update, please reach out via email to gradadmissions@une.edu and we will route your message to the appropriate contact for follow-up.
