Students may apply to either the Marine or Atmospheric Science tracks in our thesis based M.S. or Ph.D. programs or our new non-thesis M.A. in Marine Conservation and Policy. Please note that it is not necessary for students to have prior marine experience to apply to our programs. We are particularly interested in recruiting applicants with solid quantitative skills in math and science to our M.S. and Ph.D. programs. With 50 faculty pursuing grant funded research and over 125 graduate students, SoMAS is an exciting place to pursue graduate studies. More detailed information can be found on our web page at www.SoMAS.stonybrook.edu. Please feel free to contact me with any questions: Anne McElroy, Ph.D., [email protected], 631-632-8488.
