It is estimated that up to 80% of all life on earth exists in the ocean – it could be even more, considering less than 10% of the sea has been explored by humans.
Forget swimming with dolphins and looking at coral – although there’s every chance you’ll get to do that at some point in your degree – a major in Marine Biology will ensure you develop a detailed understanding of the biota and ecological processes of marine environments.
Gain an appreciation of the diversity of marine life, the interactions between species and biota, and the physical environment.
With a strong emphasis on fundamental biological principles and how these underpin successful marine management, you’ll cover topics including fish, wildlife populations and ecology, aquaculture and human impacts through extensive fieldwork and practical learning.
