Welcome to Marine Science & Conservation!

Marine Science and Conservation (MARSCI) encompasses the interdisciplinary study of marine systems, their protection, and their governance. Coursework and field experiences will ground students in the relevant natural, physical and social science disciplines, and prepare them to dive deeply into specific issues facing our oceans and maritime communities.

The Marine Science and Conservation major is designed to be flexible, allowing students to build proficiency in many aspects of marine science while affording ample opportunity for specialization in a field or topic of interest.
