The MLML mission is to "Provision the Pioneers of the Future" in the Marine Sciences. We do this through a hands-on, field-oriented approach to our curriculum, which places our students at the frontiers of marine science where discoveries are being made. The expertise of nine full-time MLML faculty is strongly complimented by a number of research faculty and affiliated researchers, and we serve approximately 120 students with the support of about 50 talented staff. Because MLML is associated with the California State University system, the primary responsibility of the faculty is teaching. In addition to emphasizing well-taught courses and mentoring of graduate students, the MLML faculty and associated researchers are regional leaders within their research disciplines. The combined emphasis on teaching and research provides a unique setting for graduate student education. The great wealth of nearby marine resources, the faculty emphasis on mentoring and teaching with integrated research, and the excellent facilities, staff, and marine operations contribute to make this one of the best programs for a Master of Science in Marine Science in the United States.
