Outstanding Senior Award
Marine Science is the study of the marine environment and its interactions
with the earth, the biosphere, and the atmosphere. It is therefore an
interdisciplinary science requiring a knowledge of the principles of physics,
geology and geophysics, mathematics, chemistry, and biology. A major in
marine sciences provides students with a broad curriculum in the sciences,
which demonstrates how the different disciplines can be brought to bear
on understanding marine processes and managing ocean resources wisely.
The major prepares students for graduate work in oceanography or one
of the basic disciplines, civil service careers in environmental management,
employment in the many applied environmental and marine science fields,
or teaching in the secondary schools.
