Have you dreamed of protecting the earth's oceans?
The NSU Oceanographic Center offers several academic concentrations in biological and physical oceanography. Students can choose from several areas of interest, including coral reef studies, modeling of large scale ocean circulation, coastal dynamics, ocean atmosphere coupling, benthic ecology, marine biodiversity, calcification of invertebrates, marine fisheries, marine microbiology, molecular ecology and evolution, and wetlands ecology.
Students may pursue graduate degrees in marine biology (M.S., Ph.D), marine environmental sciences (M.S.), coastal zone management (M.S., in-house or online) and oceanography (Ph.D). Courses operate on a trimester system and are held in the evening for the convenience of working students and professionals. A joint program with the undergraduate center at the university's main campus offers a B.S. degree in marine biology, life sciences, science and the law, and science and the business environment.
Flexible online distance learning courses are also available for general interest, undergraduate or graduate credit, or as components of a Graduate Certificate in Coastal Studies or Marine and Coastal Climate Change. Oceanographic Center distance courses may also lead towards an MS in Coastal Zone Management, MA in Cross-Disciplinary Studies or MS in Environmental Education.
