Ocean and earth sciences (M.S.) and oceanography

The *Department of Ocean, Earth & Atmospheric Sciences *at *Old Dominion
University *awards stipends (including tuition waivers) on a competitive
basis to students admitted to the graduate program for Fall 2008. We
grant degrees in ocean and earth sciences (M.S.) and oceanography
(Ph.D.); both feature specialization in physical, geological, chemical,
and biological tracks. Our faculty and students carry out research
projects that range geographically from the Arctic to the Antarctic and
thematically from micro- to global-scale processes. We operate a
research vessel, the R/V Fay Slover, in lower Chesapeake Bay and on the
mid-Atlantic coast. Our graduates have found employment in federal,
state, and local governments, in colleges and universities, and in
private industry. Our program provides opportunities to work with
interdisciplinary teams on real-world problems at the cutting edge of
science and technology.
