Biology Major - Aquatic Science Concentration
Our demands for aquatic resources and the stresses being placed on them are constantly increasing and continue to threaten their integrity. For example, the use of freshwater for domestic, industrial, and agricultural purposes reduces and alters natural habitats. The discharges of pollutants into our waters threatens the survival of essentially all aquatic organisms. For these reasons, a wide variety of rewarding professional career opportunities exist for students in Aquatic Sciences, including:
- Freshwater Biology/Limnology
- Marine Biology
- Aquatic Toxicology/Water Quality
- Aquatic Microbiology
- Fisheries Biology/Management
Our Aquatic Science curriculum provides students with a strong background in Biology and related areas such as Chemistry and Mathematics and allows students the flexibility to choose electives from a diverse group of aquatic science courses.
