Department of Oceanography & Coastal Sciences
Our department is interested in recruiting highly qualified graduate students who can benefit from our interdisciplinary perspectives. The overarching theme of our graduate courses and research is understanding and predicting ecological changes across gradients that extend from coastal areas across the continental shelf.
Students can choose either a thesis or professional option. Discover the advantages of obtaining a Master's in Oceanography & Coastal Sciences.
The Department of Oceanography & Coastal Sciences (DOCS) has a non-thesis option which is designed for individuals interested in non-research careers (positions in regulatory agencies, management groups) where breadth of course work may be more valuable than research experience.
- Students are accepted for this course of study through regular admission procedures of the LSU Graduate School and Department’s Academic Affairs Committee. Students may attend full or part-time.
- Students must remain in “good academic standing” in the Graduate School and maintain at least a cumulative 3.00 grade point average.
