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.
