School of fish in the ocean

Shaping thriving ocean futures

Advancing healthy coastal communities and marine systems through knowledge, partnerships and innovation.

The College of Global Futures proudly announces the launch of its fourth school, which advances learning, discovery and partnerships that shape a thriving global future – the School of Ocean Futures.

The School of Ocean Futures focuses on the current and future states of the ocean, while also addressing the challenges our oceans experience due to increasing pressure from human activities. It combines research and teaching facilities in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans with cutting-edge research facilities housed within the Rob and Melani Walton Center for Planetary Health on ASU’s Tempe campus. These will provide students with a wide array of experiential learning opportunities that will prepare them to conduct work of significant impact.

With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live.
