Graduate Programs

Degree Program: MIT-WHOI Joint Program

The MIT-WHOI Joint Program is one of the premier marine science programs in the world. It draws on the complementary strengths and approaches of two great institutions: the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI).


Fellowship Program: Geophysical Fluid Dynamics

Up to ten competitive fellowships are available for graduate students to gather with scientists for a ten-week research and study program in Woods Hole each summer to exchange ideas through lectures and seminars.

WHOI-Cornell University Cooperative Program

This program provides Cornell students with opportunities to enroll in WHOI courses and conduct design projects under the supervision of WHOI scientists and engineers.


Guest Students

WHOI does not conduct a formal internship program, but a limited number of college graduates and undergraduates and advanced high school students are accepted as student volunteers in our laboratories on a year-round basis.
