Master of Marine Affairs

Major Project

The major project is required of students in the MMA program and those in the major-project track of the MAMA. The major project does not involve a thesis committee but the student works with a major professor. The major project is not subject to a defense, but should include a presentation of results. Meaningful interaction between the student and his or her major professor is an essential part of the process leading toward completion of a thesis or major project. MMA and major-project track MAMA students receive three credits for their major project through successful completion of MAF 589, Master’s Project Research.
