program offers a great diversity of research
opportunities.

Course requirements for all students are SMS 500 (Marine Biology), one semester of statistics at the graduate level, one semester of seminar (SMS 691) and a basic knowledge of descriptive oceanography.  Students interact closely with their committees to select additional coursework that provides both a broad knowledge base in marine biology and specific emphases appropriate for their degree programs (e.g., aquaculture, biological oceanography, biology of fishes, ecology, invertebrate biology, marine algae, molecular biology). For additional information on requirements and recommended courses, please see the Graduate Handbook (student handbook) (An updated version of the student handbook is currently in the works) and the Marine Biology Milestone Tracking form

Students will be expected to develop special expertise in one area of marine biology. This coursework will be determined in close consultation with the student's committee.
