SML Masters programme

Marine and coastal sciences

A unique set of Masters degrees in France

The grouping of 8 master’s degrees in the single coherent area of Marine and Coastal Sciences is unique in France. According to its disciplinary fields, each program covers different aspects of Marine and Coastal Sciences: Biotechnology, Biology, Environmental Management, Applied Economics, Law of Maritime Spaces and Activities, Earth, Planet and Environmental Sciences, Marine Environmental Chemistry, Physics. The programs are backed by the research laboratories of the IUEM and its partners (CNRS, IRD, Ifremer, SHOM, Cedre, CEREMA, ENSTA, IMT Atlantique, ENIB, Ecole Navale). They offer the best teaching conditions to train the future professionals who will be experts in their disciplines and capable of establishing collaborations between natural sciences (ecologists, geochemists, biologists and geologists) and society (geographers, lawyers, economists). The programs are fully integrated in the ISBlue graduate school.


The SML Master’s degree focuses on interdisciplinarity in the field of Marine Sciences, but also on internationalisation by welcoming international students, supporting incoming and outgoing mobility and specific actions.
