Oceans dominate the Earth! The wise stewardship of marine and coastal resources requires that we expand our knowledge of the processes that influence the ecosystem services and goods that fuel our socioeconomic needs. The mission of the Department of Marine Sciences is to develop this knowledge through research and training the next generation of marine scientists. For students we offer three different graduate degrees and an undergraduate minor. I invite you to explore these programs and join us in our pursuit of basic and applied marine science. For other researchers and the public, I invite you to view our faculty webpages to see the exciting discoveries that we have made and peek at those to come.
Thank you for your interest,
Sean P. Powers, Ph.D.
Professor and Chair of Marine Sciences
