    If you are considering the Applied Marine and Watershed Science Masters program, call and check what classes will be available while you're attending here. The list of electives looks extensive, but only 3 or 4 of those classes will be offered in your two years here.

    It is always good idea to check out different campus that have your choice of major/study. But once you visit and tour the campus of CSU Monterey Bay and see what it has to offer for prospective students, meet the staff and fellow students you will in no doubt want to make this your school of choice. I would also suggest checking out the local surrounding areas.

    Any prospective students should definitely bring rain boots and comfortable walking shoes. The beach is about a 15-minute walk from campus which is awesome but you have to be prepared to climb up a dune before reaching the water. The dorms are a bit small and packed since the school has been turning doubles into triples or triples into quads to accommodate the incoming students. You really have to plan your space and storage well. Also, once you find out who your roommates are, start talking to them via email/text/facebook so you guys can set up some ground rules and get to know each other before move-in!
