Oceans PhD Program

The objectives of the doctoral program in Oceans are to enable students to develop the skills needed to conduct interdisciplinary, collaborative and original investigations into oceans-related research, in order to advance exploration and knowledge of our blue planet and tackle the most pressing challenges in climate and sustainability. The Ph.D. is conferred upon candidates who have demonstrated substantial scholarship, high attainment in a particular field of knowledge, and the ability to conduct independent research. Graduates must also be able to interpret research results and present the data and conclusions in a publishable manner, while developing strong teaching and effective public-facing communication skills.
