The BS in marine science with an emphasis in hydrography provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to collect, analyze, and manage oceanographic data and chart various dimensions of the world's oceans. Students take courses in many different scientific and computational disciplines to prepare for the work of being a hydrographer. Students with degrees in marine science with a hydrography emphasis work in areas such as oil and gas exploration, navigational safety, natural disaster and sea level rise studies, habitat mapping, and ocean circulation modeling.
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.
