I want to learn more about Gannon University's Freshwater and Marine Biology program.
Earth’s water resources are in increasingly high demand – and so are aquatic scientists. Gannon’s freshwater and marine biology program will immerse you in the wonders of aquatic life, prepare you to solve diverse environmental problems, sustain marine
life, and obtain careers studying freshwater or marine ecosystems. Delve into exciting careers in aquatic ecology, marine biology, fisheries biology, environmental science and more.
Gain real-world knowledge through key freshwater and marine biology courses including:
Limnology: Study the biota of fresh waters through modern limnological techniques with emphasis on Lake Erie and Presque Isle Bay
Tropical Marine Biology: Take coursework in the Bahamas to explore ecological systems including coral reefs, mangroves, beaches, tidal pools and inland habitats.
Biology Research I and II: Design and facilitate a faculty-supervised research project that will prepare you for real-world opportunities.
Students will experience a high-quality scientific education and undergraduate research that will enable success in the rigors of graduate school or a future career. Students in Gannon’s freshwater and marine biology program can:
