Marine Sciences Summer Program

Research the Many Facets of Marine Science.

Interns will work with faculty and research staff in a research-intensive atmosphere on a research topic in chemical, physical, or biological oceanography, marine biology, marine geology, or marine biogeochemistry. Students will develop their project under the guidance of their faculty mentor and will present written and oral reports at the end of the summer. Interns will also attend weekly research seminars, professional development presentations and field trips to nearby coastal marine systems.

Please contact Dr. Joanna York with any questions


Our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program offers the opportunity for undergraduate students from around the nation to participate in a summer research program. Participants must be currently enrolled undergraduate students. Students from community colleges, institutions with limited research opportunities and from underrepresented groups in ocean science as defined by the National Science Foundation (African-Americans/Blacks, Hispanic Americans, Asians, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and Native Pacific Islanders), are especially encouraged to apply. Please note that applicants must be US Citizens or Legal Permanent Residents. In addition, they must be enrolled in a degree program leading to a bachelor’s degree.
