The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) - Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Joint Program in Oceanography/Applied Ocean Science and Engineering is a five-year doctoral degree program. The combined strengths of MIT and WHOI provide research and educational opportunities in scientific and engineering disciplines that contribute to ocean science. Many students carry out interdisciplinary research. Only U.S. Naval Officers are admitted to the Joint Program for a master's degree. Increasing representation, having a diverse student body, and advancing inclusion are critical to the MIT-WHOI JP’s mission, and to the missions of both MIT and WHOI.
