Overview

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.
