It combines 8 specialities in the same domain, each covering different aspects of Marine and Coastal Sciences according to its disciplinary field: Biotechnology, Biology, Environmental Management, Applied Economics, Law of Maritime Activities, Earth, Planetary and Environmental Sciences, Chemistry and Life Sciences, Marine Physics.

This field of training is crucial for the coherence and visibility of an exceptional multidisciplinary thematic offer with strong economic and societal stakes and a close synergy between teaching, research and 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 educational conditions to train future professionals who are experts in their disciplines and able to establish partnerships between the natural sciences (ecologists, geochemists, biologists and geologists) and society (geographers, lawyers, economists).
