Marine Option Program

The Marine Option Program (MOP) is designed to assist students interested in relating the ocean to their educational aspirations. Through MOP, students can obtain a marine orientation to their own major while earning an official UH system certificate which is registered on their transcript. The MOP certificate can be attached to an A.A., B.A., B.S. or M.S. degree.

MOP emphasizes experiential, crossdisciplinary education and provides opportunities to apply traditional course work to the real world while students obtain practical marine skills through a “hands-on” internship, research or employment. MOP sponsors numerous field trips, a newsletter, and many opportunities for networking with other interested students and professionals.

Contact the Leeward MOP Coordinator, Dr. Frank Stanton, for information on a variety of existing marine skill opportunities which can be adapted to a student’s personal learning and career objectives. Students may also develop their own projects. A total of twelve credits are required: nine credits of ocean related courses, a one-credit seminar course and a two-credit independent study project.

MOP is open to any undergraduate who is enrolled at any of the UH campuses. Progress towards a MOP Certificate can be transferred between UH campuses.

For more information and details on certificate requirements, contact MOP Coordinator, Dr. Frank Stanton, at 455-0286
