The PhD School of Marine and Coastal Sciences (SML) is multidisciplinary and relies on excellent research laboratories. The SML doctoral school aims at training specialists in their discipline who are able to evolve in a multidisciplinary scientific context. Hosted and housed at (the) IUEM, this doctoral school helps building a culture in marine sciences, which is also extended to human and social sciences. It has 200 PhD on site and relies on 38 research units, through 22 specialities, as well as 228 holders of a habilitation to direct research (HDR).
The Master’s degree in Marine and Coastal Sciences is unique in France. It groups under the same domain 8 mentions which cover, each according to their disciplinary fields, different aspects of Marine and Coastal Sciences: Biotechnologies, Biology, Environmental Management, Applied Economics, Maritime Activities Law, Earth, Planet and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry and Life Sciences, Marine Physics.
The Doctoral School of Marine and Coastal Sciences is naturally multidisciplinary and aims to bring together the disciplines involved in the study of the marine environment in the broadest sense. It trains high-level specialists in the universe sciences, life sciences, human sciences and engineering.
The Pedagogical Innovation Service supports university pedagogy. A pedagogical engineer accompanies, supports and trains teachers, students and doctoral students in the transformation of their pedagogical practices. It also helps to promote these initiatives.
