You’re fascinated by the marine world. Your scholarly interests include the study of the animals and plants that live in the ocean (including sharks!). A Marine Science master’s degree with a concentration in Marine Biology broadens your knowledge of the physical and biological components of marine ecosystems, so you can pursue your advanced research goals, or advance your career as a specialist at an aquarium, museum, university, laboratory, environmental consulting firm, or government organization. 

In this master’s program, you’ll gain a thorough understanding of the taxonomy, natural history, and ecology of a wide variety of marine organisms. You’ll conduct hands-on research and have opportunities to focus your studies on a specific aspect of marine biology. As a graduate, you’ll not only walk away with a thorough comprehension of marine biota, but you’ll know how to communicate your research and your knowledge to interested parties.
