Defenses

GRADUATE STUDENT THESIS DEFENSES

The Graduate Student Thesis Defense is the Culminating Experience for MLML’s Masters in Marine Science program.  Our graduate students are required to present their thesis to an audience comprised of their Thesis Committee, MLML Faculty, fellow students, the MLML research community, and researchers from other marine science institutions. They also are open to the public.
