Marine & Coastal Science Undergraduate Major

Marine & Coastal Science Undergraduate Major

The Marine & Coastal Science Undergraduate Major was established in 2013 and designed to build upon existing strengths present in three colleges at UC Davis: Letters & Sciences, Biological Sciences and Agricultural & Environmental Sciences. The major draws from top-ranked, nationally recognized programs, including Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Engineering and Environmental Science and Policy. The major emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of marine sciences by exposing students to the full spectrum of disciplines that constitute modern marine science and policy and be requiring hands-on experiences as interns or researchers in at least one sub-discipline.
