University Majors

University of California, Davis
Marine and Coastal Science B.S. (Oceans and the Earth System)

The major in Marine and Coastal Science focuses on the interdisciplinary nature of marine sciences by exposing students to core, breadth, and focus area courses in the discipline, in addition to a strong foundation of science preparatory material. The major builds upon existing strengths at UC Davis in marine and coastal sciences as well as field-­based courses offered at Bodega Marine Laboratory to provide students a unique, interdisciplinary, `hands on` education.  In this major, students will be exposed to modern issues facing marine and coastal environments; e.g., climate change, pollution, carbon cycling, conservation. The major requires field experience, independent research or internship, and concludes with a capstone course featuring current research in marine science. These integrative experiences will require students to synthesize the interdisciplinary topics that they have encountered through this degree program. The mastery achieved provides a strong foundation for future careers in academic science, government, policy, and the private sector. Focus and Breadth areas include: Coastal Environmental Processes, Marine Ecology and Organismal Biology, Marine Environmental Chemistry, or Oceans and the Earth System.
