Thanks for showing interest in the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, the “marine campus” of the University of Miami. We offer MSc and PhD degrees in Applied Marine Physics (AMP), Marine and Atmospheric Chemistry (MAC), Marine Affairs and Policy (MAF, MSc only), Marine Biology and fisheries (MBF), Marine Geology and Geochemistry (MGG) and Meteorology and Physical Oceanography (MPO). For our incoming MSc and PhD students we offer competitive stipend rates and full health insurance coverage. In addition to our MSc and PhD programs RSMAS offers Master of Professional Science programs. The diversity of our graduate programs allows for specialization and also provides a unique opportunity to engage in cross-cutting interdisciplinary training and research.
The Rosenstiel of School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences campus is located 20 min from the University of Miami’s main campus of 15 min from the Medical school on Virginia Key, on a small island a mile off shore, in beautiful Biscayne Bay. Since our founding in the early 1940’s, graduate students have played an important role in our everyday life. We currently serve a population of >250 graduate students with an internationally renowned and engaged faculty of nearly a hundred and a wide range of highly competitive research programs. Few places in the world can match the individual attention offered to our students, and the opportunities we provide for interdisciplinary research and training.
Located on an island of the South Florida Atlantic coast surrounded by the off shore Gulf Stream, near shore coral reefs, the Florida Keys, the Caribbean, Biscayne National Park, and the Everglades National Park we are at an ideal location at the edge of the tropics for the serious student of marine and atmospheric sciences. The Rosenstiel School’s faculty performs research related to all these systems but think globally with collaborative links and active research projects over most of the world. Areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, coastal ecosystems, including coral reefs, aquaculture, organismal biology, ecosystem modeling, fisheries sciences, climate change and ocean acidification, ocean circulation, hurricane research, carbonate chemistry and geology, atmospheric chemistry and air-sea interactions. You may also be interested in knowing that Miami is an exciting place to live with a dynamic, multiethnic, culturally diverse atmosphere and international flavor.
We hope to receive your application
