ABOUT UC SANTA CRUZ
UC Santa Cruz is a public university like no other in California, combining the experience of a small, liberal arts college with the depth and rigor of a major research university. It's known as an unconventional place where innovation and experimentation is part of the campus's DNA. That playful, bold spirit still thrives today, all on a campus renowned as among the most beautiful in the world.
The Coastal Science and Policy program (CSP) is an interdisciplinary, solution-oriented program focused on coastal resilience; conservation; fisheries and aquaculture; innovation; and justice, equity, diversity and inclusion. We train highly diverse cohorts of rising leaders in coastal sustainability through a two-year MS degree in which each student works one year in a real-world setting with a partner organization to advance a solution; and a PhD designated emphasis. The CSP program is a hub for coastal innovation, hosting the Blue Pioneers Program accelerator and offering the nation's first Hacking for Oceans course. The program also leads and coordinates research collaborations among academic, government, non-profit and private organizations. These include research with the City of Santa Cruz and multiple partners on coastal adaptation; and leading MARINE, the Monterey Area Research Institution's Network for Education. The Coastal Science and Policy Program is also uniquely positioned to enhance workforce development initiatives in Coastal Climate Resilience (CCR) that will strengthen the capacity of practitioners already working in or whose jobs newly demand their involvement in CCR and strengthen preparation of UCSC students for positions in CCR.
