About the Program
This interdisciplinary program combines aspects of biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics, and physics in order to provide a well grounded education in the natural sciences, and it applies a systems approach to identifying and understanding the roles that the oceans play in the functioning of our planet.
Marine Science is designed to train students so that they can obtain jobs related to science and technology in both government and industry, jobs as educators in the natural and environmental sciences, and jobs in the expanding environmental field.
