Oceanography Ph.D.

The Oceanography (OCE) graduate program has a diverse set of faculty, staff, and students who examine ocean processes in broad fields of physical, biological, chemical, and geological oceanography and geophysics.  Basic and applied research of an experimental, numerical, and analytical nature is conducted in oceanic settings that range from shallow nearshore and estuarine waters to the deep ocean and span all ocean basins on earth including the Arctic. 

OCE offers programs leading to M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees.  These interdisciplinary programs prepare students for professional careers in ocean-relate fields.  In addition, students can also pursue an ocean mapping option within the Department of Earth Sciences and carried out within the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping.

The OCE graduate program is housed academically within the Department of Earth Sciences, and is enhanced by the ocean engineering and zoology graduate programs, and by other departments and institutes at UNH including civil and mechanical engineering, Institute for the Study of Earth, Oceans, and Space, Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping, and the Ocean Processes Laborabtory.  Other related programs include the N.H. Sea Grant Program, the National Estuarine Research Reserve Science Collaborative, and the Center of Excellence in Coastal Ocean Observation and Analysis.
