ASU has added a fourth school to its College of Global Futures, one it says will bring together ocean scientists and teachers from across the globe.

The School of Ocean Futures will tie together ASU research and teaching facilities in Tempe, Bermuda and Hawaii to study the planet’s largest biome and climate-change canary: its oceans.

Students and faculty will study the current state and likely future of the oceans, including challenges posed by increasing pressure from human activities.

The school’s Pacific base lies in Hilo on Hawaii’s Big Island.

ASU will conduct its Atlantic research at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, home to two of the planet's longest-running ocean observation programs.

ASU says the school will offer courses and degree programs beginning in the fall of 2024.
