[MARINE_BIOLOGY_INTERNATIONAL] University of Hawaii to offer graduate degrees in Marine Biology


Honolulu, HI - The University of Hawaii has received approval from the university's Board of Regents to begin offering Hawaii's first graduate degree program in marine biology.

The marine biology PhD and master of science program anticipates the need for scientifically-trained professionals in the public and private sectors for problems related to ocean and coastal resources, the university said in a statement.

The Marine Biology program will have provisional status until a required review is conducted during the 2017-18 academic year.

The program will offer training in the marine biological sciences, including fisheries, coral reef biology, marine ecology and evolutionary genetics, marine biosensory and physiological processes and marine resources management, the university said.

The program will be jointly administered by the university's College of Natural Sciences and the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, the university said.

Previously, graduate students who wished to major in marine biology were able to add it as a supplement to a graduate degree in microbiology, oceanography, botany or zoology.
