Marine Ecology Minor

The marine ecology minor focuses on the interactions among marine organisms and the relationships between these organisms and their environment. This minor is intended for marine biology majors who want more specific training in marine ecological science. Students in other majors who meet the prerequisites may also pursue this minor. This minor is available to PALS (day) students only. This minor can be combined with any major and minor except the marine biology minor. When combining with the marine biology major, a minimum of 6 credits must be exclusive to the minor and cannot be counted toward the major.
