Add UW's new marine biology minor!

Tag humpback whales in Alaska, cruise to Hawaii studying pollution, track dead sea birds along the pacific coast, live at Friday Harbor Laboratories on San Juan Island for a quarter collecting samples on scientific dives.

Take advantage of attending UW and living in the Puget Sound and Pacific Northwest by adding a marine biology minor. Take courses in Oceanography, Aquatic & Fishery Sciences, and Biology that put you on boats, in the field, and in award winning faculty labs doing assignments and research that help preserve our planet and marine resources.

You can add the marine biology minor to any degree at any time, even as a freshman. The minor is designed to give all students a small intensive training in scientific method that will prepare students to do their own research in marine biology.
