The USF College of Marine Science offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees with specializations in biological, chemical, geological, physical oceanography, and marine resource assessment (MRA). Students are trained in an interdisciplinary manner. Both M.S. and Ph.D. candidates are required to complete a core course program covering the four basic oceanographic disciplines (and additional MRA focused core classes for students that elect the MRA concentration). Requirements for the M.S. degree include 32 credit hours of course and research work and defense of a thesis that makes an original contribution to oceanography.
