COS MARINE Consortium

Monterey Area Research Institutions’ Network for Education (COS MARINE)


The Monterey Institute is a member of the COS MARINE consortium led by the Center for Ocean Solutions. The goal of COS MARINE is to enhance graduate marine education in the Monterey Bay area through a collaboration among the seven local academic institutions— Monterey Institute of International Studies, CSU Monterey Bay, Hopkins Marine Station, Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, Naval Postgraduate School, Stanford University, and UC Santa Cruz.

MARINE facilitates exchange among these institutions and provides an array of high quality inter-institutional activities such as courses, seminars, and workshops that are free of charge to eligible students. Throughout the academic year (and often during the summer) students from all seven campuses have opportunities to apply their training to pressing ocean issues and engage in real world problem-solving.
