About the Marine Program
Formed in 1974, the UNH Marine Program serves to integrate the marine research, education and public service activities of over 60 faculty, 300 undergraduate students and 100 graduate students from 14 departments and three colleges at the university. The Program serves as a catalyst for marine research activities at various levels from individual investigators to large interdisciplinary Centers of Excellence and Cooperative Institutes. These activities have attracted in excess of $25M in extramural support annually at the university and allowed us to expand the research opportunities available to our undergraduate and graduate students.
In addition to these opportunities, the Marine Program retains a core focus on finding solutions to real-world problems and integrating these efforts not only into the formal classroom, but through nationally-acclaimed public education and outreach efforts through our Marine Docent and Sea Grant programs.
