Prospective Graduate Students

Join us!

The University of Delaware’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment provides exemplary instruction with the goal of preparing students for meaningful careers in education, research, business, and government service.

From the classrooms and labs at our campuses in Newark and Lewes to field work throughout the state, region, and worldwide, our faculty and students are connected in active and engaging learning environments.

In addition to advanced work in the area of their specialty, graduate students in the college are expected to think broadly about their work and its implications for society. Courses outside the student's specialty ensure a well-rounded background. In addition to formal course work, you'll have the opportunity to conduct research on critical earth, ocean, environmental, and atmospheric topics under the guidance of distinguished faculty.

For more information about applying to one of our graduate programs in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, please contact our Assistant Dean for Graduate Studies at CEOE-academics@UDel.Edu or click here for additional information on the application process.

Student Spotlight

Brandon Boyd, an oceanography doctoral student in the College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, received a prestigious SMART Scholarship from the Department of Defense.

The federal initiative supports students pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, with the goal of adding more civilian scientists and engineers to DOD laboratories. The competitive scholarship has three components: a stipend to support Boyd’s graduate studies, an internship to work at during his summers and a full-time job once he defends his dissertation.
