Inclusive of Cooperating and Affiliate members, more than 70 Graduate Faculty teach and advise graduate students in the Oceanography field of study. The collective research expertise and programs of these faculty provide a broad diversity of potential projects and employment opportunities for students. Department faculty are loosely organized into three Divisions — Physical Oceanography, Marine Geology and Geochemistry (MGGD), and Biological Oceanography; the research activities and publications of the Oceanography Faculty are described on other pages of this web site.
We encourage applications from talented, motivated students to join our international department. Learn about the programs and application process.
