A recently finalized articulation agreement between institutions will ease the pathway for Monmouth University undergraduate students interested in pursuing master of science (M.S.) or professional science master’s (P.S.M.) degrees through Stockton University’s Coastal Zone Management Program.
Under the framework, Stockton, located in Galloway Township, New Jersey, will admit up to five Monmouth students each year who are on track to graduate with a bachelor of science (B.S.) degree through the Marine and Environmental Biology and Policy (MEBP) Program. The application fee for students will be waived.
The dean of the Monmouth University School of Science and chair of the Department of Biology will interview and recommend students for matriculation into the Stockton program during their junior year. Stockton will officially inform successful applicants at the end of that year.
According to the Stockton M.S./P.S.M. in coastal zone management website, the purpose of the graduate degree program is “to develop the holistic knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the complexities of managing human interactions within a highly dynamic coastal environment, and to analyze the natural, social, legal, economic and institutional processes for integrated coastal zone management and sustainable development.”
The five-year agreement will take effect on July 1, 2023, and could be extended at a later date.
