About

The Florida State University Oceanography area offers several graduate degree programs. Applicants can choose between a Ph.D. in Oceanography, a Master's in Oceanography or a Master's degree in Aquatic Environmental Science.

Overview

 The Oceanography degree at Florida State University is a non-thesis track program designed to serve working professionals and undergraduate science majors. 

Learning outcomes

The program culminates in a capstone project. We also offer a Professional Science Master's degree for students who are looking for a more MBA-like program. This degree is a non-thesis terminal MS degree with a capstone course that will focus on a project or internship.

Any degree seeking student with at least a B.S. or B.A. degree in a basic science may apply to enter the Master's program. Most successful applicants without a Master's degree in oceanography or a closely allied field are accepted into the Master's degree program. However, such applicants, as well as applicants with Master's degrees in oceanography or a related field, may also apply directly to the Ph.D. program. Admission to the M.S. or Ph.D. program is granted upon a favorable majority vote of the faculty and upon agreement of a faculty member to act as a major professor.
