Marine/Aquatic Biology


Topics of Study

This program has a combined approach to the study of marine and aquatic biology, including biological oceanography and limnology. You will focus on the study of the ecology and behavior of microbes, plants, and animals inhabiting oceans, coastal waters, and saltwater wetlands, and also those living in inland fresh waters such as lakes, ponds, rivers, and estuaries. This includes instruction in chemical, physical, and geological oceanography; marine microbiology, marine population dynamics, and studies of specific species, phyla, habitats, and ecosystems.
