Why Study Marine Sciences?

Get your feet wet (literally!) by studying Marine Sciences at Stony Brook. Conduct research on Long Island’s coastal waters or by embarking on a study abroad program in the Caribbean. In your classes, you'll learn basic biology, physics and chemistry of the ocean. Upper-division classes will help you gain a deeper understanding of particular groups of organisms (microorganisms, algae, marine invertebrates, fish, and marine mammals) and of habitats (salt marshes, rocky intertidal, barrier islands, dunes, estuaries, and the open ocean). You'll do hands-on research in our state-of-the-art laboratories and on our research vessels.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Biological Oceanography
  • Experimental Marine Biology
  • Marine Pollution
  • Diseases of Aquatic Organisms

SAMPLE COURSES:

  • Marine Microbiology and Microbial Ecology
  • Long Island Marine Habitats
  • Waves, Tides, and Beaches
  • Coastal Oceanography

ADMISSION INFO:

As a non-restricted major, there are no additional admission requirements for this program. Please review the general admission criteria related to how you are applying.

After Graduation

Your college decision isn't really about the next four years. We get it. It’s about what doors are opened by your degree and whether those opportunities are what you had envisioned for yourself. Nearly 95% of SBU grads go to professional or graduate school. Here's a snapshot of what life after graduation looks like for some of them.

CAREER OPTIONS:

  • Watershed Ambassador
  • Environmental Scientist
  • Assistant Professor
  • Meteorology Research Analyst

RECENT EMPLOYERS:

  • AmeriCorps
  • California Dept. of Toxic Substances Control
  • University of Connecticut
  • UC San Diego
