The UGA Department of Marine Sciences has 15 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 modeling. The Department of Marine Sciences participates in the undergraduate Interdisciplinary Studies Program and the Coastal and Oceanographic Engineering Certificate Program.
