The UGA Department of Marine Sciences has 17 full-time faculty
engaged in teaching and research at the graduate and undergraduate
levels. Faculty research interests range from the ecology of bacteria
and phytoplankton, to inorganic and organic biogeochemistry, to
ecosystem dynamics modeling and ocean acoustics.
We offer graduate degree programs at the Ph.D. and M.S.
levels with concentrations in biological, chemical, and physical oceanography.
Current graduate students are conducting research in coastal ecology
and processes, biological oceanography, molecular microbial ecology,
sediment processes, environmental genomics, and marine ecosystem
Reflecting this breadth of interests, our alumni work in academia in both research and outreach positions, industry such as biofuels and environmental consulting, and with governmental agencies.
The Department of Marine Sciences participates
in the undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies Program and the Coastal
and Oceanographic Engineering Certificate Program.
