The first degree

From the very first student awarded a Ph.D. from the MIT-WHOI Joint Program— Frank Bohlen, here at the 1970 Commencement in Woods Hole—to the graduates of 2009 who receive their degrees today, the Joint Program has awarded more than 800 degrees in ocean science and engineering. Students in the program pursue a diversity of research while here, and as alumni follow equally diverse paths, often to educational institutions and other marine research institutions. Congratulations, Graduates!
