The Boston University Marine Program provides a rigorous interdisciplinary education in Marine Science. Our curriculum encompasses the biological, physical, chemical, geological, and spatial dynamics of marine systems. AllMarine Science majors complete Introductory Oceanography and Marine Biology courses, three upper-level MarineBreadth courses designed to cover the breadth of Marine Science, and four upper-level Marine Semester courses.The Marine Semester is a demanding sequence of four, consecutive, research-based courses. This often-transformative experience integrates faculty research and teaching, immerses students in the research process, and exposes them to current issues impacting marine ecosystems. Our goal is to provide an education that provides an unparalleled understanding of the world’s oceans, the organisms that live within them, and their interactions with people.
