B.A. in Marine Studies

(HEGIS 0418)

The program in Marine Studies enables a student to combine study in the marine sciences with study in another field, such as business, government, or education, of the student’s own choosing. The purpose is to provide students with a broad knowledge of the world’s waters and their importance — with special attention being given to Long Island’s marine environment — while at the same time equipping them to assume responsibility for the administration and management of our global marine resources.
