The MIT – WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography/Applied Ocean Science and Engineering is a five-year doctoral degree program that combines the strengths of two world-renowned institutions to provide research and educational opportunities in scientific and engineering disciplines that contribute to knowledge about the ocean.
In WHOI’s Summer Student Fellowship program, undergraduates who have completed their junior year spend a summer getting hands-on oceanographic research experience and working with world-class scientists, engineers, and graduate students.
WHOI participates in the Woods Hole Partnership Education Program (PEP) is a 10-week, multi-institutional program among the six Woods Hole scientific institutions and the program’s academic partner, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, designed for college juniors and seniors from underrepresented groups in marine and ocean sciences who want to spend a summer gaining practical experience in marine and environmental science.
Semester at WHOI (SAW) is an undergraduate residential “study-away” semester-long research experience directly advised by a WHOI scientist or engineer for rising juniors and seniors studying biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, mathematics, physics or engineering.
Marine Science and Coastal Sciences doctoral programs have formal requirements for students to have completed a field component or experience. In most cases, senior students or graduate students/post-docs are afforded the opportunity to serve as “Chief Scientist”
The Hydrographic Science master’s program with FIG/IHO Category A certification
USM’s Gulf Coast Research Laboratory’s (GCRL) Marine Education Center (MEC) currently manages three undergraduate programs for GCRL and the Department of Coastal Sciences
The Summer Field Program provides undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to learn about coastal environments in an intensive field and lab based setting
The GCRL Research Internship Program gives students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain research experience in a coastal setting by working under the leadership of its faculty, research scientists, and graduate students
The Science & Engineering Internship Program aims to train community college, undergraduate, and graduate students studying ocean sciences, technology, engineering, and video in the at-sea environment aboard E/V Nautilus.
