Marine Biology Minor for EEB Majors (MBEB)

Undergraduate Minors

In addition to the core courses and the elective courses (selected after discussion with Marine Biology advisor) required for either the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology (EEBI) major or the Environmental Biology (ENVB) major, students who wish to add a minor in Marine Biology will complete an additional 16 credits beyond those required for the EEB major which will include:


  • EBIO 2100 – Marine Biology (3 credits)
  • EBIO 2230 – Oceanography (3 credits)
  • EBIO 4250 – Marine Invertebrates (4 credits)
  • Two approved summer courses at an approved marine field station (6 credits)

These courses cannot be counted toward either EEB major for those students electing to complete an EEB major and the Marine Biology minor. Courses to be completed at the marine field station must be approved for transfer credit by the Marine Biology advisor before they are taken at the marine field station.
