SML Master’s degree
Marine and coastal sciences
The Master’s degree in Marine and Coastal Sciences is unique in France. It brings together under the same domain 8 mentions which cover, each according to its disciplinary fields, different aspects of Marine and Coastal Sciences: Biotechnology, Biology, Environmental Management, Applied Economics, Maritime Activities Law, Earth, Planet and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry and Life Sciences, Marine Physics, etc. This training domain is crucial for the coherence and visibility of an exceptional multidisciplinary thematic offer which is being extended to the scale of the Université Bretagne Loire. Its articulation with the Department of Sea and Coastal Research and the Doctoral School of Sea and Coastal Sciences of the Comue, with strong economic and societal challenges, creates a close synergy between teaching – research – business.The master’s degree, backed by the research laboratories of IUEM and its partners (CNRS, IRD, Ifremer, SHOM, Cedre, CEREMA, ENSTA, IMT Atlantique, ENIB, Ecole Navale), offers the best teaching conditions to train future professionals who are experts in their disciplines and capable of establishing collaborations between natural sciences (ecologists, geochemists, biologists and geologists) and society (geographers, lawyers, economists)”.
