The Department of Oceanography is located on the University of Hawaii's largest campus (about 20,000 students), overlooking Waikiki and downtown Honolulu. Inclusive of Cooperating and Affiliate members, more than 70 Graduate Faculty teach and advise graduate students in the Oceanography field of study. The collective research expertise and programs of these faculty provide a broad diversity of potential projects and employment opportunities for students. Department faculty are loosely organized into three Divisions: Physical Oceanography, Marine Geology and Geochemistry (MGGD), and Biological Oceanography.
