The Department of Marine Science is the academic counterpart of the Marine Science Institute.
It offers a formal teaching program at the Institute in the summer, providing courses in marine science at the graduate and upper-division undergraduate courses levels.
If you are a Junior, Senior, or New Graduate Student in Engineering and the Sciences, including Social Sciences, the Graduate School invites you to attend their NSF Workshop. For more information click here.
The Department offers M.S. and Ph.D. degree programs in Marine Science.
