A leader in limnology and aquatic ecology

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is recognized worldwide as a leader in limnology and aquatic ecology. The Oceanography and Limnology Graduate Program, begun in 1962, continues the university's 100-year tradition of research on lake ecosystems. The program combines research and teaching from several fields and departments to develop a greater understanding of the oceans and inland waters--their origins, inhabitants, phenomena and impact on human life.

Individualized program for graduate training

This program offers curricula leading to the MS, PhD or PhD minor in oceanography and limnology. Students entering the program must have had at least one year of college-level biology, chemistry, physics and calculus. Interdisciplinary in nature, each individualized program provides graduate training in aquatic sciences while integrating a variety of courses in related sciences.

Integrating many disciplines

The program is administered by the College of Engineering and sponsored jointly by the College of Letters and Science and the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences. More than 20 faculty members in civil and environmental engineering, botany, food science, geology and geophysics, atmospheric and oceanic sciences, plant pathology and zoology supervise the program's graduate students. Faculty members guide students in developing study plans, research and career goals.
