Oceans are responsible for more than half the oxygen we breathe and absorb the most carbon from our atmosphere. They help reduce the impact of climate change and are home to hundreds of thousands of species of animal and plant life. Studying Marine Sciences at Carroll University prepares you to work toward protecting this amazing resource.


About the program

As a Marine Sciences graduate, you’ll be on the forefront of research and discovery. Oceanographers look at the big picture, such as how currents and the patterns of Arctic sea ice relate to broader issues of climate change. As a marine biologist, you might study the impact of human behavior on plant and animal life in coral reefs. 

You could work directly with marine life in a public aquarium, or become a pioneer in the aquaculture industry, looking for innovative ways to reduce hunger through marine farming.

Carroll University’s unique marine sciences program is offered in collaboration with Hawaii Pacific University (HPU). 

You’ll spend two years at Carroll, learning fundamental principles in biology, chemistry and math, as well as completing general education requirements. 

Many students choose our program because it allows them to stay close to home while immersing themselves in marine biology as an undergraduate.
