Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology
The Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Biology encompasses a rigorous curriculum stressing a strong foundation in biological sciences as well as chemistry, math, physics and oceanography as preparation for further study in graduate school, and for a broad range of careers. All majors start their freshman year with a seminar on Topics in Marine Biology (=URI 101). After a year of Introductory Biology (which may be satisfied by AP credit), students choose four core biology courses, and then Marine Biology elective courses can be taken as soon as prerequisites are met. Students may choose from undergraduate courses and some graduate courses offered by URI’s many marine-related programs such as Fisheries, Aquaculture, Marine Affairs and Oceanography.
