Hopkins hosts approximately 25 graduate students from the Department of Biology and E-IPER (Emmett Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Environment and Resources). Ph.D. students typically spend one year on the main campus to complete coursework and fulfill teaching requirements. Students then move to the Monterey area to complete their Ph.D. research at Hopkins in conjunction with one of the permanent faculty. Prospective Hopkins graduate students must apply through the Department of Biology or the E-IPER PhD programs.
Opportunities also exist for coursework and short-term research projects for graduate students in other departments. For example, each summer an environmental microbiology course at Hopkins, 274H, attracts students from Environmental Engineering, Geophysics, and Geological and Environmental Sciences. A new program allows classes to be taken at nearby institutions as well. See MARINE.
Graduate students awards are given to further help with research costs.
Graduate students do well after leaving Hopkins.
