Nuestro Programa

Our MS in Marine and Atmospheric Sciences and MA in Marine Conservation and Policy equip students to help solve complex environmental problems.

The School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS) was established in 1965 as the Marine Sciences Research Center (MSRC) of New York State. We have since expanded the scope of our efforts to include atmospheric sciences and sustainability studies. The mission of SoMAS is to advance knowledge and solve critical global and regional problems through the study of human and natural systems. Indeed, SoMAS faculty and staff have always had a passion to do science in service to society. As our unofficial motto states, we are “Making Scientific Research Count.” We consider ourselves passionate stewards of a natural and sustainable Earth, at a time when challenges between society, the sea, and the sky are growing in number and intensity. Our unique access to important coastlines and estuaries and a nearby living laboratory in one of the world’s great megacities, New York City, affords us an exceptional opportunity to address these issues.SoMAS strives to be a world-class integrative program in marine, atmospheric and sustainability research and education, committed to a culture that promotes academic excellence, diversity, equity and inclusion.
