What will I learn?

Marine Science is a well-rounded and multi-disciplinary program which has been carefully designed to take full advantage of the unique variety of marine environments available for study around the island of Hawaiʻi. Introductory lecture and laboratory courses in general oceanography and marine biology are followed by intermediate-level courses in marine ecology and evolution, marine methods, and statistical applications in marine science.

The BA in Marine Science is designed for students planning on careers in marine related businesses in such fields as ecotourism, agriculture, or environmental law. It has more electives to give students greater flexibility in customizing the degree to their specific goals and fewer upper level science requirements than the BS.

The BS in Marine Science is designed for students seeking careers as scientists, secondary school science teachers or university faculty. It has more upper level marine science requirements than the BA program and fewer electives.
