|Field of Study:||Marine Biology and Biological Oceanography
|Description:||Examine the diets of grey seals, apply statistics to prevent overfishing, learn about aquaculture, run underwater experiments, or analyze DNA—in Dalhousie’s Marine Biology program, the sea’s the limit. If your passion is the sea, Dal is one of the best places in the world to study, and we’re a national leader in marine biology education. You’ll learn in classrooms and labs—and you could be out on the open water, studying the behaviour of sperm whales, running your own underwater experiments, tracking the movements of fishes, and assessing the diversity of marine birds.
Students who wish to study Marine Biology in conjunction with another subject may wish to pursue a Combined Honours degree program. The other subject may be any discipline from the Faculty of Science
