MIT/WHOI Joint Program Alumni
Over 800 MIT/WHOI Joint Program degrees have been awarded since the Program's inception in 1968. Graduates are working all over the world in diverse areas including research institutions, liberal arts colleges and high schools, museums, government, private industry, non-governmental organizations, and science journalism, just to name a few.
Joint Program alumni/ae, as an External Review Committee noted in 1998, include "many of the scentific leaders of oceanography." They have forged their own paths in industry, academia, and the government.
As they have moved on, many alumni/ae have retained close links to the Joint Program. Dozens have made themselves available as mentors or sounding boards for current Joint Program students.
