    MARINE BIOLOGY at Alaska Pacific University

    Marine Biology majors study the life of the oceans, and the environments in which it occurs. Marine biology is an interdisciplinary science. Students study the natural sciences, math and statistics, tools of the trade (aquarium husbandry, geographic information systems, scientific diving), and a variety of topics in marine biology.

    When you major in marine biology, you'll study fascinating sea life, the chemistry of ocean water and the physics of life in a fluid medium. At Alaska Pacific University, you will live it also - caring for corals or octopus in the aquarium lab, identifying and counting fish or invertebrates on surveys of the ocean bottom, working safely on the water and underwater, monitoring marine mammals, and applying scientific principles to our knowledge and management of the oceans.

    From Alaska, marine biology majors visit a world of marine ecosystems, from cold-water rocky reefs to temperate coastal estuaries to tropical coral reefs.

    Marine Biology degree: B.Sc. or minor in Marine Biology | Master of Science Environmental Science degree
