Current Students at USF Marine Science

The College of Marine Science is home to the Master’s and PhD in Marine Science degree programs. Our current students are a vibrant part of our community through their research, outreach, and advocacy. The Academic Affairs office seeks to support the whole student as they pursue their degree. Academic Affairs offers a variety of programing and advising throughout the year. (Please note that meetings and programming will be virtual and on MS Teams due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
