Oceanogrphy Curricula 440

The Oceanography Curriculum provides students with a sound understanding of the science of oceanography. The student develops the technical expertise to provide and use oceanographic and acoustical data and models in support of all aspects of at-sea operations. The graduate will be able to:

  • Interpret and predict oceanic and air-ocean interface conditions.
  • Operate modern oceanographic data management, archival and communications systems.
  • Plan, conduct, interpret and present results of research activities.

This education further enhances performance in operational billets, technical management assignments and policy-making positions. Students will develop a sound, graduate-level, technical ability based on scientific principles.

My job is to support you in your educational efforts and answer any questions you have as a future, current, or graduated student. This website is designed to answer some of these questions, but please do not hesitate to contact me directly at (831) 656-2045 or
