The Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Marine Science
The UCSB Interdepartmental Graduate Program in Marine Science offers two graduate degrees: The Master of Science and the Doctor of Philosophy in Marine Science. The Masters program is very small and by thesis only. Most students enter the PhD program without a Masters degree.
Faculty in 8 Departments across the UCSB campus participate in the Marine Graduate Program. Professional Researchers and Postdoctoral Scholars associated with 3 Research Institutes, the Marine Science Institute, the Institute for Computational Earth Systems Science, and the Institute for Crustal Studies also provide a wealth of contacts, expertise, and opportunities for graduate students in the Marine Sciences.
