Course content


Marine biologists study the natural processes affecting organisms in marine and estuarine environments and the human effects on these processes. Marine Biology encompasses all organisms in the marine world, from microbes to animals, from invertebrates to whales, as well as plants such as seagrasses and seaweeds.

The Master of Biological Science, with a specialisation in Marine Biology, provides you with knowledge of marine organisms and marine environmental systems and will equip you for a wide range of jobs in marine environmental sciences.
