Aquatic Sciences Minor

About the Minor

Marine and freshwater aquatic ecosystems cover over three-fourths of the world’s surface and provide significant food and recreation resources for people throughout the world. 

This minor is for students who want to increase their knowledge of the physical and biological components of aquatic ecosystems, with a focus on vertebrates found in oceans, rivers, streams and lakes. Students can choose among selective courses to focus their minor on practical fisheries management or broader understanding of marine or freshwater ecology.
