College of Science Introduces New Marine Biology Major
Starting this fall, Northeastern University will be offering students a Marine Biology major through the College of Science.
Northeastern University maintains the only major, year-round marine laboratory in the Greater Boston area. Its extensive rocky shoreline, flowing seawater system and central location within the Gulf of Maine all combine to provide outstanding resources for hands-on education and cutting-edge research in marine science.
The Marine Biology major replaces the current Marine Biology concentration at Northeastern University.
The Marine Biology major will give students the opportunity to focus on the study of marine organisms, communities and ecosystems while gaining a solid background in molecular biology, genetics, physiology, ecology and evolution.
For any questions about the new Marine Biology major, please contact Geoffrey Trussell (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Matthew Bracken (email@example.com).
