    Bachelor of Science (Marine Biology)

    About

    Deep dive into marine life and explore the living marine world. Get a broad understanding of the biology of marine organisms, their relationships with the physico-chemical marine environment, and their potential responses to changes. The degree provides you with the ability to acquire extensive knowledge in marine biodiversity, ecology, genetics, conservation, fisheries and related areas, and builds transferable skills.

    • Learn from internationally eminent marine biologists and oceanographers undertaking world-class research on current issues in marine science
    • Focus on global environmental issues related to the oceans and marine life
    • No background in science required, just an inquiring mind
    • Combines cutting-edge technical and theoretical knowledge with flexibility, allowing you to tailor your progress, skills and knowledge to suit your interests
    • Opportunities to participate in marine-based fieldwork, including field trips to different marine bio-regions

    Career

    The range of specialty areas and career opportunities are expansive. There are marine biologists who study the basic biochemistry of marine organisms, or the growth or behaviour of individual plants or animals. Some adopt an even larger perspective and study how entire marine ecosystems function.
