Center for Marine Science


The Center for Marine Science is compelled to help foster the first of UNCW's seven strategic goals: To create the most powerful learning experience possible for our students.

CMS offers students, both graduate and undergraduate, the opportunity to learn through collaborative scholarly activities with world-class faculty at a level that rivals exclusive research institutions. The center considers itself a community of learners who embrace scholarship and the necessary interplay between teaching and research. The faculty and staff at CMS strive to create learning environments and experiences that promote the cognitive, affective, physical and social development of the student learner.
