Integrated Coastal Sciences Ph.D. Program
A Multi-Disciplinary Approach
ECU’s Ph.D. in Integrated Coastal Sciences prepares students to solve the complex coastal problems of the future through a multidisciplinary approach across health, natural and social sciences. It is a research-intensive doctoral degree program that provides a flexible program of classroom instruction, field research, work experience, and doctoral dissertation. Students will be prepared for careers in government agencies, private firms, nonprofit organizations, and academic research and educational programs.
Dr. Sid Mitra, Director of the Integrated Coastal Sciences Ph.D. program believes “Coastal Scientists of the future must be adequately trained and understand research theory in the integration across the disciplines of natural, health and social sciences to address the complex problems facing coastal societies.”
