The MIT-WHOI Joint Program provides a high quality graduate education leading to an internationally-recognized doctoral degree awarded by both institutions. 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.
For U.S. Naval Officers, the application deadline was October 1, 2020 for 2021 enrollment. The Joint Program offers a master's degree program for U.S. Naval Officers, and more than 85 officers have received this degree dating back to the first award in 1970. With the exception of the U.S. Naval Officers program, students are not admitted to the Joint Program for a master's degree.
