The BS in marine science provides students with a multidisciplinary education that integrates natural and computational sciences coursework in the study of ocean dynamics. Students take courses in biological sciences, chemistry, geology, physics, mathematics, and computer science to prepare them broadly in the area of marine science (oceanography). Students with degrees in marine science can expect to work in fields driven by scientific research, including environmental research and consulting or advocacy work.
Students may complete the freshman and sophomore years of their program at either the Hattiesburg or Gulf Park campuses. The junior and senior years of the program are delivered at Gulf Park exclusively, where students will have access to specialized classes that utilize laboratory facilities in Long Beach and the Gulfport Port Facility.
