Oceangoing studies

Students in the University of San Diego’s Marine and Environmental Sciences program perform oceanographic research off the coast of San Diego.

University of San Diego students have a close relationship with Scripps Oceanographic Research Institute and go out on the Scripps’ oceanographic vessels. There’s a similar academic link with Sea World and its Hobbs Research Institute. Students get to present their research.

The classes are small, with a lot of faculty-student interaction. So they get to do real work.

“That’s why we’re excited about this new [Center for Science and Technology],” said President Alice B. Hayes. “We’ll have twice as many labs and a lot of very nice equipment.”
