A dual admission program in marine science is available for freshmen and transfer students. Students will complete the bachelor's degree and a non-thesis master's degree in marine science in a six-year period. A master's degree that includes a research thesis may take longer to complete.
Students in this program are reserved placement at the Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography once required standards have been met. Students will complete a minimum of 120 credits in any undergraduate major. After 45 credits of graduate work, the student will earn a master’s degree in marine biology. In addition, outstanding students will have the opportunity to conduct independent research either at the Oceanographic Center or at field locations throughout Florida.
The undergraduate marine biology major is a rigorous science major designed to prepare students for graduate study in ocean science or marine biology. The curriculum consists of courses in physical and life sciences and is taught by research faculty in the Halmos College. This will fully prepare the undergraduate for the graduate curriculum, supplementing and enhancing the experience.
