Training and educating the nation’s next generation of environmental scientists is critical to fulfilling UMCES-IMET's mission. While our faculty focuses on providing graduate level students opportunities to learn from and work with active biotech researchers, UMCES-IMET also offers programs designed to engage students of all ages.
UMCES-IMET graduate students are enrolled in another USM degree-granting institution and conduct their research at IMET's Baltimore Inner Harbor Location. More information about graduate studies at UMCES is available here.
The Living Marine Resources Cooperative Science Center (LMRCSC) prepares underrepresented minority students for careers in research, management and public policy that support the sustainable harvest and conservation of our nation's living marine resources. The program seeks to lead the development of a pool of underrepresented minority scholars entering the field of marine sciences and fisheries through a collaboration among several acdemic institutions.
