Marine Biology

    Major overview

    Overview

    Marine biology is much more than just swimming with dolphins – it is the key to understanding and responding to important issues facing our planet, like global warming and the impact of tourism and pollution on our oceans.

    You’ll become an expert in marine biological systems, and in the application of ecological principles and environmental management strategies. You’ll also develop a breadth of knowledge across many disciplines, from biological sciences such as botany and zoology to the physical sciences of chemistry, geography and oceanography.

    You may then decide to explore careers in commercial aquaculture, environmental monitoring, research or tourism (and yes, that may include swimming with dolphins).
