BACKGROUND: Marine Resource Management (MRM) is an interdisciplinary
master’s degree program based in the College of Oceanic and Atmospheric
Sciences (COAS). MRM’s faculty come from many departments and programs
at the University, including Oregon Sea Grant and the Coastal Oregon
Marine Experiment Station. Additional links to the Hatfield Marine
Science Center, other universities, and to marine industry and resource
management agencies provide internship and support opportunities for
students. Since its inception in 1974, MRM has granted 185 degrees; for
the last 10 years it has had a stable student population of 25-35. MRM
graduates have a strong grounding in the ocean sciences, social and
policy sciences, information sciences, and data handling and
communication skills. Over the next several years, the MRM program will
be expanded to become a full discipline within COAS, with expanded COAS
faculty and curricular offerings, while preserving the cross-college
strength of the present program.
Oregon Sea Grant Extension brings the resources of research and higher
education to bear on real-world issues facing coastal residents,
businesses and communities. Sea Grant Extension faculty and staff work
in teams to address critical marine and coastal issues. Each team
includes community-based agents and specialists located on the OSU
campus or at one of the University's coastal research and outreach
facilities, plus support staff. Working in teams provides an
opportunity to combine fresh ideas and decades of experience,
emphasizing educational programming and group decision-making to
address the challenges facing Oregon's coastal communities, the state,
the Pacific Northwest and the nation.
