About Marine Science
Get hands-on learning in marine science. You will work in labs and workshops to observe the natural world at the interface of land and sea, make measurements that determine the health of environments and organisms, and engage in scientific inquiry for sustainable use and conservation of marine habitats. You may also engage with other disciplines, including:
- Fine arts
- Sustainability studies
- Food systems studies
- Critical theory
- Social justice
- Indigenous studies
Evergreen is located on the Puget Sound, providing direct campus and community access to a dynamic environment where nature, commerce, and maritime communities unite. The beach has a small shellfish farm and a marine aquarium lab where you can observe organisms in their environment or up close with microscopes.
Whether you're interested in a career in the sciences or you love the seashore, you can learn more about the marine environment and marine organisms, take field trips to the beach, and grow live marine organisms.
At the advanced level, you can pursue marine ecology and invertebrate zoology programs that include hands-on training in lab and field analytical techniques, animal observation, research projects and build upon foundational general biology and general chemistry knowledge to apply to the marine environment.
