What do our students study?

As a University of New Haven Marine Affairs major, you will take classes and engage in hands-on activities that provide you with the background you need to understand and think critically about complex marine issues and how to effectively communicate information on these crucial issues. To be truly effective in the field of marine affairs, however, you also need a strong scientific knowledge about the oceans. With those all-important skills, you will be more than simply an expert on the subject — you will actually help effect change in the world.

Marine Affairs is an interdisciplinary field and, therefore, all University of New Haven Marine Affairs majors are required to complete a minor in an art, humanities, social science, business, or criminal justice discipline, depending on their career objective, in addition to completing a year-long senior thesis project designed around that objective.
