Oceanography is the study of the physical and the biological aspects of the ocean. It is an Earth science covering a wide range of topics, including ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; and fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries. With laboratories, offices and the sea being the place of work, the tasks of an oceanographer will be varied and research intensive. Oceanography is a wide-ranging scientific field, and oceanographers usually specialize in one of the following subcategories: Biological Oceanography, Geological Oceanography, Chemical Oceanography and Physical Oceanography.
A degree on Oceanography not only provides sound scientific knowledge of the marine environment, but places strong emphasis on the key skills which are highly regarded by employers. Depending on the degree and specialized module choices, graduates from the Department of Oceanography and Hydrography can apply for jobs in the following areas, both at home and abroad:
