DEGREE: BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
MAJOR: MARINE SCIENCE
CONCENTRATION: MARINE BIOLOGY
Students must complete the university-level, college-level and breadth requirements for College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment Bachelor of Science degrees.
A second writing course involving significant writing experience including two papers with a combined minimum of 3,000 words to be submitted for extended faculty critique of both composition and content. This course must be taken after completion of 60 credit hours. Appropriate writing courses are designated on the registrar's course search page. NOTE: ENGL410 fulfills this requirement
Successful completion of the intermediate-level course (107 or 112 or 214) in a given language. Number of credits needed and initial placement will depend on number of years of high school study of foreign language. Students with four or more years of high school work in a single foreign language may attempt to fulfill the requirement in that language by taking an exemption examination.
COLLEGE BREADTH REQUIREMENTS:
These requirements apply to all College of Earth, Ocean & Environment Bachelor of Science degrees. College breadth courses when combined with University breadth courses must represent at least two departments or appropriate instructional units in each category.
If the grade earned is sufficient, a course may be applied toward more than one requirement (e.g., breadth and major requirements), but the credits are counted only once toward the total credits for graduation. If all but one course in a group has been taken in one department or program, a course cross-listed with that program will not satisfy the distribution requirement.
*note: 3 credits in each category below can be used to fulfill the University Breadth requirement
Understanding and appreciation of the visual and performing arts, of aesthetic forms, designs, or craftsmanship, or of literary, philosophical, and intellectual traditions. Courses may focus on a single aesthetic form or intellectual tradition, or cross-cultural comparisons.
Understanding of the sources and forces of historical changes in ideas, beliefs, institutions, and cultures. Courses may address social, cultural, intellectual, economic, technological, artistic, scientific, and political development, changes in a discipline, or globalization and its effects.
Understanding of the behavior of individuals and social groups in the context of their human and natural environments. Courses emphasize the empirical findings, applications, and methods of the social and behavioral sciences.
