The Marine Science Biology degree is one of the defining degrees at The University of Tampa and a pivotal double major for the Department of Biology. Drawing from general biological principles and very specific marine-related issues, the course of study includes substantial exposure to biological, chemical, and physical aspects of marine science. Courses are geared towards experiential learning, with rich lab experiences, weekend field trips to remote locations like the Florida Keys, and even international travel courses.

Moreover, nearly half of the biology faculty is conducting research on marine organisms or systems, providing numerous opportunities for student research and other real-world experiences. Students graduating with this degree are exceptionally well prepared to enter the job market or to pursue graduate training in any specific field of marine science, from basic to applied.

This is a somewhat prescribed degree program, without specific areas of study, or "concentrations" from which students choose courses. However, students are able to pick from a wide range of courses to round out their degree or tailor it to their specific needs.
