The NC State University Center for Marine Sciences and Technology welcomes a new group of  students to its Semester at CMAST program!  Now in its eighth year, Semester a CMAST is an academic, experiential learning experience that provides opportunities for select NC State undergraduate students to study coastal and marine sciences from CMAST in Morehead City.  

During their semester-long stay at CMAST Coastal Quarters, participants will take 16 credit hours of unique courses taught by CMAST faculty.  Each student will also work on a project related to-level student or professional mentor. 

Semester at CMAST fosters cross-disciplinary research, as students interested in biology, oceanography, atmospheric sciences, chemistry, physics and engineering, economics, and policy come together to learn and research. 

Dr. David Eggleston, director of CMAST, says because of the program’s success, “The Provost has committed to continue this high-impact program for another five years.  Many thanks to those who have agreed to mentor students with hands-on projects.”
