Course Summary

This multidisciplinary programme, based at the world-leading National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS), will cover all the key ocean sciences, including marine biology, marine geology, marine geophysics, marine physics and marine chemistry, giving you the chance to learn more about the breadth of oceanography and the oceans. You will build your knowledge and skills progressively over four years.Initially you will learn how the fundamental sciences of oceanography interact within the marine environment. Later, more emphasis will be placed on focusing your knowledge of specialised subject-specific marine science. You will develop your practical skills in the laboratory and on board our research vessels, which are moored minutes away from the lecture theatres. You will also take part in a dedicated oceanography field course and research-orientated independent projects.The course is taught by academics who have influenced policy decision-making at government, national and European level, and our students benefit from their links with industry, government and other major oceanography and marine biology centres around the world.All of our Oceanography courses are accredited by the Institute of Marine Engineering Science and Technology (IMarEST).
