Objectives:
The Marine Biology Program is an integral part of the Biology department at Dalhousie. Students obtain a basic grounding in Biology in their first two years, and use their third and fourth years to study in greater depth the diversity, ecology, physiology, and other aspects of marine animals and plants. Marine Biology students often also take classes in the biology, chemistry or physics of the ocean, offered through the Oceanography department.
Award:
Bachelor of Science Honours in Marine Biology
Course Description:
20-credit BSc Honours in Marine Biology

In addition to the required Biology credits (3.0) and Marine Biology credits (3.5 - 4.5), students must select 1.5 - 2.5 more full credits from the list of Marine Biology (MARI) classes or BIOL classes with some marine emphasis to fulfill the university requirement of a minimum of 9 credits beyond the 1000 level in the Honours subject.
