Marine Biology concentrates on marine wildlife and marine habitats.

The lab component includes microscopic studies, dissections, observation of live specimens and activities designed to help students understand a wide range of concepts related to marine life. In addition, students will participate in trips to the Georgia Aquarium, Tennesee Aquarium, and Education Escape’s Barrier Island trip. Students will serve as instructional assistants to younger students on the BI trip.
