Students interested in a holistic, synthetic analysis of the natural sciences as they relate specifically to ocean processes and the marine environment are invited to consider a minor in marine science. A minor in marine science requires a minimum of 18 hours, with a grade of C or higher in each course, chosen from the approved list of courses. MAR 210 - The Oceans , MAR 300 - Marine Science I: Oceanography , MAR 301 - Marine Science II: Marine Biology and at least one marine science laboratory (MAR 300L or MAR 301L ) are required for the marine science minor. The remaining 7 hours may be selected from any of the 300- to 400-level MAR course offerings. Please note that the prerequisites for MAR 300 /MAR 300L and MAR 301 /MAR 301L are BSC 110 /BSC 110L , BSC 111 /BSC 111L , CHE 106 /CHE 106L , CHE 107 /CHE 107L , and MAT 101 .
