Marine Science is the scientific study of the oceans and combines research areas in aquaculture, coastal processes, fisheries science, marine biology, marine conservation, marine geology, and oceanography to explore the marine habitat. Alongside learning about the theory of Marine Science, you will have the opportunity to develop practical skills in research design and analysis of the marine environment.

Marine Science is centered at the Leigh Marine Laboratory, which offers unique opportunities in marine research. Facilities include a 14m research vessel and several smaller boats, diving support, a flow-through seawater system for tank experiments, onsite accommodation for students and visitors, a library and access to the University’s online catalog, aquaculture facilities, a meteorological station, and well-equipped laboratories.
