Marine Science B.S.

The Marine Science B.S. provides training similar to that of a basic sciences B.S. except for its focus on the marine environment.  We are particularly proud of the content and hands-on approach in our Integrated Marine Science (IMS) series.  The following table contains the portion of the curriculum that is common for all Marine Science B.S. students, regardless of their choice of specialty.

PLEASE NOTE: This page does not contain listings for required General Education courses or reflect total credit hours required for the chosen program. Students must work with advisors to ensure correct scheduling of courses and credit hours.  SBS = Semester by the Sea.

Please contact the School of Marine Sciences office for complete information.

This page is under construction and will be completed soon.
