Wittenberg's minor in marine science is designed for students who want a solid foundation in the field. A fundamental goal of the minor is to allow students to explore the interdisciplinary nature of marine science and the connections among its subdisciplines. If you pursue the minor, you will take courses in Marine Ecology, Oceanography, and Physical or Environmental Geology, as well as other electives. In addition to coursework, you will participate in a marine field experience and conduct a research project or other significant work on a marine topic. Many students who minor in marine science major in biology, environmental science or geology, and the minor especially benefits those students interested in pursuing graduate work in a marine-related field.
