Three Seas: Master of Science in Marine Biology

Subject: Three Seas: Master of Science in Marine Biology

The Three Seas program in now accepting applications for its Fall 2019 cohort. Three Seas is a full immersion, experiential learning marine biology master’s program!

Three Seas provides the opportunity to study marine biology in three different marine environments: in New England at the Northeastern Marine Science Center (Nahant, MA) during the fall semester, in the Caribbean at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (Bocas del Toro, Panama) and in the Pacific Northwest at the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories (San Juan Island, Washington) throughout the next spring. The program culminates in mentored research projects that students can conduct anywhere, offering them flexibility in their research goals.

This is a unique opportunity for students to live and work in the environments that they are studying and explore three diverse ecosystems through field-intensive courses in marine biology and ocean science. The program is SCUBA intensive, and students complete an average of 70 dives over the course of 15 months!

Please pass along MS Marine Biology and Three Seas Program information to students you think would be a great fit for our program. Contact Andrea (Three Seas Program Manager) at with any questions and find more information here:
