Degree Project (thesis) for master in Marine sciences

The work can be done at the Department of Marine Sciences, at another institution in a relevant discipline, or externally at a company, institution or authority, and is supervised by scientifically trained researchers. To be registered on the course requires an approved individual study plan. The degree course may also, in agreement with the department, be registered as 30, 45 or 60 credits.
