College of Marine Science

Located on the spectacularly beautiful waterfront of Tampa Bay adjacent to the USF St. Petersburg campus, CMS offers PhD and MS degrees. The College is focused on interdisciplinary research in marine science. Graduate student education and educational outreach are integral to the college’s mission. Our 25 ranked faculty, support personnel and roughly 100 graduate students work together to understand the unified global ocean system. The College seeks to build new interdisciplinary research teams in collaboration with our local marine science research partners, such as the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute, the U.S. Geological Survey, and NOAA Fisheries. Together, we comprise the largest hub of ocean science expertise in the Southeast.
