Program Description:

The Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science was established in 1943 as the Marine Laboratory of the University of Miami. It has grown from its modest beginnings in a boathouse to become one of the nation’s leading institutions for oceanographic and atmospheric research and education. The School’s basic and applied research interests have grown to encompass virtually all of the marine-related sciences in all oceans: marine and atmospheric chemistry, marine geology and geophysics, ocean acoustics, ocean engineering, applied marine physics, physical oceanography, satellite oceanography, meteorology, marine biology and fisheries, biochemistry, marine biomedicine, marine biotechnology, and marine affairs and management. The Rosenstiel School is now one of the five largest oceanographic facilities in the United States and boasts one of the broadest research agendas in the global oceanographic community. Offering graduate studies leading to the Master of Science, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy degrees, the School offers curricula in applied marine physics, marine affairs and policy, marine and atmospheric chemistry, marine biology and fisheries, marine geology and geophysics, and meteorology and physical oceanography. The School also offers undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Marine and Atmospheric Science degree and the Bachelor of Arts in Marine Affairs.
