[beasiswa] [info] Opportunities for Students Seeking a Master's of Science Degree, Marine and Environmental Biology

The College of Charleston offers a graduate degree (M.S.) in Marine
Biology. The program seeks to provide knowledge and skills that will allow
graduates to pursue further graduate study and/or successfully pursue
professional employment in the marine science field.  The program consists
of 26-27 hours of coursework and 4 hours of thesis research. The
coursework involves four core classes: Marine Ecology, Physical
Oceanography, Physiology and Cell Biology of Marine Organisms, and
Biometry, in addition to a diverse selection of elective courses.

The program is based at the Grice Marine Laboratory, across the harbor
from historic downtown Charleston and the main campus of the College of
Located near coastal marshes, tidal creeks and rivers, barrier islands,
and the ocean, the program offers exceptional opportunities for basic and
applied research. The cooperative nature of this program provides access
to the facilities of all participating institutions at the Fort Johnson
Marine Science Center: the Hollings Marine Laboratory, the South Carolina
Department of Natural Resources, the National Ocean Service/NOAA, National
Institute of Standards and Technology, the Medical University of South
Carolina and Grice Marine Laboratory.  These partners comprise a large and
diverse faculty, including approximately 110 researchers ready to guide
students in their respective area of interest. Training and research
opportunities include marine ecology and conservation, biodiversity,
evolutionary biology, cell and molecular biology, physiology, aquatic
toxicology, fisheries science, mariculture, microbiology, biomedicine, and
marine genomics.  Research conducted by graduate students is typically
presented to the public at local colloquia, national and international
meetings, and through peer-reviewed publications.
One distinctive feature of the program is that incoming students have the
freedom to take a semester to meet faculty and learn more about the broad
field of marine biology before choosing their research project and thesis
advisor. The program has available teaching and research assistantships in
which out-of-state portion of tuition fees may be waived.  New students
are guaranteed teaching assistantships for at least the first academic
year. There is an average enrollment of about 50 graduate students in the
marine biology program; almost all of these students receive financial
assistance in the form of teaching or research assistantships.  A number
of scholarships are also available for new and current students, including
a new scholarship program in marine genomics for a current stipend of
$22,000 per year.
