Marine Biology

Marine Bio

The marine biology degree program at Central Methodist University is all about quality of life... not just the quality of the aquatic world.

It begins with a strong interest in life sciences. The marine biology major gives CMU students an opportunity to explore life in the oceans, both in the classroom and through hands-on experiences. The major combines work on campus with summer work at Gulf Coast Research Laboratory in Ocean Springs, Miss. and other locations.

So if you enjoy science, like the water, and are ready for a rewarding career in an ever-changing field, dive into the marine biology major at CMU!
