Dive into an Immersive Learning Experience
A career in the marine sciences starts with an education that puts you in the water. The UNE Department of Marine Sciences offers students constant hands-on interaction in a variety of marine environments and state-of-the-art research facilities. All of our programs emphasize the importance of internships, field research and experiential learning, so our students don't just learn marine science — they do marine science.
Prepare for a Variety of Potential Career Paths
The U.S. Department of Labor expects employment in environmental and marine fields to continue to rise, providing a wide range of career opportunities for marine science graduates.
Choose from Multiple Degree Tracks
Our academic programs are designed to suit a variety of needs in the growing marine economy, with specialties ranging from research and coastal management to aquaculture and marine business.
Access State-of-the-Art Facilities
With our coastal location, you're never far from the water — and that's not to mention the Arthur P. Girard Marine Science Center, our fleet of research vessels and our own private island.
