Overview

The Master of Science (MS) Program in marine sciences is designed to train and prepare superior students for a career in this field.

 The marine sciences program offers courses and opportunities for research in four main areas: biological, chemical, physical, and geological oceanography. Each MS student receives formal training in at least three of these disciplines while concentrating in a specific research area.

Thus, the program is structured to develop the capacity for productive and innovative research, founded on a solid background of broad scientific knowledge. The requirements and procedures that follow are specifically for the Department of Marine Sciences. However, the general rules and policies of the Graduate School also apply.

Programme Structure

Core Courses

The four core courses consist of four semester hours each for a total of 16 semester hours in physical , chemical , geological , and biological oceanography, or equivalent transfer hours. At least two semester hours of seminarare required.

The remaining course work will be determined by the student's advisory committee, but must include six semester hours of marine sciences electives. Although a thesis is not an absolute requirement, this program is oriented toward research, and students will be expected to demonstrate research capability, preferably through completion of an acceptable thesis. 

For students pursuing a thesis program, the MS degree program of study may include up to ninehours of thesis credit toward the minimum requirements of thirty-two semester hours.
