Graduate Study

UGA Skidaway Institute of Oceanography graduate students earn their degrees primarily through the University of Georgia Department of Marine Sciences, but we also have the flexibility to partner with other UGA departments and colleges (i.e. engineering and ecology) for students wishing to pursue degrees there.

Applications to the Dept. of Marine Sciences graduate program are reviewed in early January of each year, and on a case-by-case basis in between. More information on graduate programs in the UGA Department of Marine Sciences can be found here:

Graduate research opportunities are also available to students from other institutions. UGA Skidaway Institute scientists also often partner with scientists from other institutions to provide lab and instrumental access and advice to students pursuing degrees elsewhere.

Three funded Ph.D. graduate student positions are available. Click here for details.
