Undergraduate Alumni

Besides oceanography, our former students have found work in a wide range of fields

The Bachelor of Science in Oceanography requires a broad foundation in biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics.  Students learn to seek quantitative answers to questions, write in the scientific style, think critically, and leave the program with a variety of computational tools.  These and other aspects of the program make oceanography an excellent preparation for careers and post-graduate work in a wide variety of fields.
