We offer PH.D. and M.S. degrees in 6 programs:

Atmospheric Sciences, Marine Biology and Ecology, Marine Ecosystems and Society, Marine Geosciences, Meteorology, and Physical Oceanography, and Ocean Sciences. We offer highly competitive stipend rates, tuition, and health insurance coverage for our incoming Ph.D. students as part of a fully-funded 5-year Graduate Assistantship. Finally, as part of our revitalized connections across colleges and to take advantage of our unique research facilities, we offer an M.S. degree in both Ocean Engineering and Sustainable Business. Our graduate students also take advantage of nearby NOAA facilities including the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory, Southeast Fisheries Science Center, and the National Hurricane Center.

Atmospheric Science

(M.S., Ph.D.)

(M.P .S. in Weather Forecasting, Climate and Society, and Broadcast Meteorology)

118956_image12.jpg

The Atmospheric Science department is designed to prepare students with the tools, training, and education necessary to tackle critical research problems in the atmospheric sciences today. Our faculty are experts in a wide range of research areas, including tropical meteorology, climate dynamics, cloud and aerosol processes, and atmospheric chemistry. Their expertise and guidance and our world-class facilities prepare our students for successful careers in the atmospheric sciences and related fields.

Marine Biology and Ecology

(M.S., Ph.D.)

(M.P .S. in Marine Mammal Science and Tropical Marine Ecosystem Management)

118955_image13.jpg

The Marine Biology and Ecology department focuses on a wide range of field, laboratory, and theoretical coursework in a range of research areas, such as coral reef studies, biological oceanography, fisheries, genomics, and the physiology and behavior of marine animals. The department has many international collaborators participating in multi-institutional, multi-disciplinary research programs. Graduate students can choose from a wide range of research areas and coursework taught by an internationally recognized scientist studying corals and climate change, fisheries biology, and conducting biomedical research.

Marine Ecosystems and Society

(M.S., Ph.D.)

(M.P.S. in Aquaculture, Coastal Zone Management, Exploration Science, Fisheries Management and Conservation, Marine Conservation, and Underwater Archaeology)

118950_image14.jpg

Students enrolled in Marine Ecosystems and Society work at the intersection of science and society committed to assessing, managing, and conserving marine resources through innovation and research. Although course selections are tailored to match individual research and career objectives, our graduates acquire knowledge and expertise critical to ensuring the sustainability of natural resources. The goal of our Ph.D. and M.S. program is to prepare students as future leaders in the fields of marine fisheries science, ecosystem modeling, aquaculture, conservation, ecosystem science, coastal geography, socioeconomics, cultural and natural resource management, climate change, environmental law, and marine policy.

Marine Geosciences

(M.S., Ph.D., and certificate program)

118947_image15.jpg

Marine Geosciences is focused on studying the geology, geophysics, and geochemistry of the earth system, beneath, within, and above the oceans. Students work closely with faculty at the forefront of research on earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, hydrothermal seafloor vents, and paleoclimate. MGS faculty and students also emphasize interdisciplinary study where geological phenomena interact with or are influenced by processes generally studied in other disciplines, such as ocean currents, climate, and biological evolution. This research uses pioneering remote sensing techniques to assess the earth's crustal movement and sedimentation in coastal zones.

Meteorology and Physical Oceanography

(M.S., Ph.D.)

118946_image16.jpeg

The Meteorology and Physical Oceanography graduate program was founded on the premise that oceanic and atmospheric dynamics are governed by a set of similar physical principles, and that much insight can be gained by studying their dynamics from a common perspective. The program requires students to develop expertise in both systems and prepares students to conduct leading-edge research using a complementary set of theoretical, observational, and modeling approaches. The curriculum forms a strong foundation for research on a broad spectrum of topics that include air-sea interaction, the global thermohaline circulation, tropical cyclones, El Nino, the Madden-Julian Oscillations, and the evolution of the Earth's climate.

Ocean Sciences

(M.S., Ph.D.)

(M.P.S. in Applied Remote Sensing and Natural Hazards and Catastrophes)

118945_image17.jpg

The mission of the Ocean Sciences department is to provide our students with specialized knowledge in important ocean science sub-disciplines as well as a broad understanding of the ocean as a key component of the Earth System. Our students advance the understanding of physical, chemical, and biological processes in the ocean and their interactions. Students learn first-hand about instrumentation and methods to measure the ocean using both in-situ and space-based sensors, and about the laboratory, analytical, and numerical models to understand oceanic processes. Our graduates develop into international leaders of ocean research, into teachers and communicators of ocean sciences, and into leaders and advisors of marine education, policy, and conservation.
