PhD and MS Opportunities at the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School

A recently updated, full list can be found here. All opportunities may not be listed (check back for more updates throughout the semester). If interested in applying, some faculty will take students on without having an Assistantship listed. December 1st is priority deadline and regular deadline is January 1st for MS and PhD. Always a good idea to contact faculty!

Master of Professional Science (take the same courses as Ph.D. and MS students, but instead of a thesis/dissertation, you do an internship/research in the field with organizations such as NOAA, NPS, NGOs, etc. and 94% of students have a job in the field 6 months after graduation):
