NEWS AND INFORMATION • University of Hawaii Offers Graduate Certificate in Ocean Policy

Steve H. Russell
First Paragraph

Since the spring of 1989, the University of Hawaii at Manoa has offered a graduate certificate program in marine policy. Recognizing that wise and proper management of ocean resources requires professionals with multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary training in the natural and social sciences, the certificate program is designed to complement and broaden students’ prior education and training in the field of ocean sciences and policy without requiring students to enroll in two advanced degree programs.
