Marine Science Major
Students pursuing this program must complete a minimum of one semester or two five-week summer terms at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab located on Dauphin Island in Mobile Bay. The Sea Lab is operated by the Marine Environmental Science Consortium of which Samford is an active member. At least one year (preferably more) of biology is required before any upper-level course in marine science may be taken. Alternately, a student may complete the necessary marine biology courses to satisfy a minor in marine science.
