Professional education addressing complex, real-world problems
The Center for the Blue Economy has a strong academic component within the Monterey Institute’s International Environmental Policy master’s degree program, developing and launching a concentration in Ocean and Coastal Resource Management. Students in this concentration have unique opportunities to participate in impactful projects with prestigious government agencies, businesses, and NGOs around the world. Our graduates continually receive Fulbright Awards, Sea Grant Fellowships, and top jobs in the ocean and coastal resource management field. In addition to summer fellowships, IEP students have local internship opportunities throughout the academic year with leading marine organizations in the Monterey Bay Area.
