Biological Sciences: Marine Biology Ph.D.
Ocean Engineering M.S.
Why get an advanced degree in ocean engineering? Ocean engineering is an interdisciplinary program that prepares students to interact with professionals in diverse disciplines within the ocean science community to develop responsible solutions leading to sustainable activity and life in the ocean. Ocean Engineering is a path toward developing practical, real-world ways to address the many urgent problems threatening the health of our oceans and, indeed, our entire planet.Rising sea levels, increasing populations close to the coast, and more frequent and severe storms are all issues...

Ocean Engineering Ph.D.
Why pursue a Ph.D. in ocean engineering at UNH? As a student in our ocean engineering Ph.D. program, you’ll work toward developing real-world, sustainable solutions to the many urgent problems threatening the health of our oceans and planet. Rising sea levels, increasing populations close to the coast, and more frequent and severe storms all are issues ocean engineers are addressing. This interdisciplinary program will prepare you to interact with professionals in diverse disciplines within the ocean science community. An increasing number of positions for marine engineers coupled... Read more about Ocean Engineering (Ph.D.)
Ocean Mapping M.S.
Why get a master’s degree in earth sciences with an ocean mapping option? More than 85 percent of the ocean floor is still unexplored. Ocean mappers are modern-day explorers, mastering not only the elements of mapping the seabed, but also becoming adept at such topics as the geologic characterization of the seabed; mapping of living ocean resources and habitats; and development of the tools, sensors and techniques used to map the oceans. Why choose for your earth sciences degree? As a student in the ocean mapping program at UNH, you’ll gain experimental, numerical and... Read more about Ocean Mapping (M.S.)
Why get a Master of Science in oceanography? Are you interested in the environment around you, and does a job or career in marine science appeal to you? Do your interests lie in the aquatic realm, specifically the marine system that includes oceans, estuaries and the atmosphere? Then you’re in luck! Students in the oceanography graduate program are trained in the broad sub disciplines (physical, biological, chemical and geological oceanography) and in their specialty field, and conduct research in topics including – but not limited to – coastal and estuarine processes, sedimentation...

Why pursue a Ph.D. in oceanography at UNH? Offering outstanding facilities along the New Hampshire coast and beyond,UNH is the perfect location to immerse yourself in marine science. You’ll work closely with a diverse faculty while conducting research on ocean processes in broad fields of physical, biological, chemical and geological oceanography and geophysics. You’ll have the opportunity to work 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. Our interdisciplinary programs will... Read more about Oceanography (Ph.D.)
