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 2005. We grant degrees in ocean
and earth science (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 new regional
research vessel, 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.
