A graduate department of the University of California at San Diego, Scripps is one of the oldest and largest centers for global science research and graduate training in the world. More than 300 research programs are now conducted at Scripps, aimed at gaining comprehensive understanding of the oceans, atmosphere and structure of the Earth.
Oceanography, by its very nature, is interdisciplinary. It spans many sciences including physics, chemistry, geology, biology, meteorology, climatology and paleontology. Scripps scientists, pioneered exploration of the world's marine environments. They are leaders in studies of climate change, plate tectonics, ocean circulation, marine biology and ecology, marine pharmaceuticals, seafloor mapping, seismology, coastal processes, the El Niño phenomenon, biodiversity and conservation, and atmospheric sciences.
Graduate students play an integral role in the Scripps missions of teaching and research. Scripps offers excellent graduate instruction and students perform a significant part of Scripps research activities. The stature of the institution is manifested both in the quality of students it attracts to the program and the scientists it graduates.
The Department of Scripps Institution of Oceanography offers instruction leading to MS and PhD degrees in oceanography, marine biology, and earth sciences. Scripps Oceanography offers both a MS degree program and a PhD degree program. Students can apply to be admitted into Scripps Oceanography graduate studies through either the MS or PhD programs. Both programs offer admission once a year. The PhD degree program is strongly research oriented and is for students whose final degree objective is the PhD degree. The MS degree program is intended to be a one-year terminal degree.
