Marine Science Minor

 

18 Credits

The minor is offered for students who wish to show that their studies included a focus on some aspects of marine science. A semester of introductory geology, two semesters of general biology, general chemistry, general physics, and one semester of calculus are recommended (or required prerequisites) for many of the courses in the program.
