Why Marine Biology & Marine Affairs at The University of New Haven?

Recognizing that the solutions to the ever-increasing threats to the world’s oceans and coastlines lie in highly trained and knowledgeable scientists and policy makers, Marine Biology occupies a prominent position here at the University of New Haven.

Marine Biology is a diverse field that provides needed scientific and technical information to a broad spectrum of government agencies, academic and research institutions, environmental and conservation organizations, industries, and companies.

Our program emphasizes hands-on learning, and all of the laboratory courses have a field component. In addition to first-year field courses, students immediately have the opportunity to work on faculty-mentored research projects and are encouraged to participate in at least one internship.
