BS in Marine Biology

The Marine Biology major provides students with a strong foundation in the biological and marine sciences. In their first two years, students complete their foundational science courses in biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. Our students can fulfill their upper-level marine biology requirements either on campus or during our year-long Three Seas Program. The major will help prepare future scientists that will understand the ecological and evolutionary dynamics of marine life.

For more information about the program, see the program catalog and course descriptions.
