University of Guam

Humanities and Social Sciences building The University of Guam (UOG) is a Land Grant Institution established as the only U. S. University in the Western Pacific and is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It is the premier institution of higher learning within Micronesia (including the Commonwealth of the Marianas, the Marshall Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau), a region as large as the continental United States.

The main campus overlooks the Pacific Ocean on a bluff about 10 km from Agana, the capital of Guam. Total enrollment is about 3,500 students. UOG offers a Master of Science degree in Biology with specialization in tropical marine biology. This program is supported by the Marine Laboratory and the Division of Natural Sciences. The faculty of the Marine Laboratory supports this program by teaching undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, supervising thesis research, and obtaining research grants and contracts that support our students. Many of the Research Assistantships provide students with invaluable opportunities for field experience in the western Pacific.
