Course Descriptions


 

Marine Biology

Graduate standing is required for enrollment in 5000 and 6000-level courses. Exceptions can be made for outstanding undergraduate students with the Dean’s consent. For details, see “Graduate Study by Undergraduates ” in the catalog section titled “Academic and Degree Requirements .” Weekly lecture and laboratory hours associated with each course are designated by (lecture:lab) following the semester hours when appropriate. The laboratory hours shown are instructional time. In most cases, additional laboratory time will be required to complete assigned work. Prerequisites for entry into a course are indicated, but may be waived with permission of the instructor.

Graduate Credit from other Disciplines and other Campuses

Graduate students in the MS/PhD Marine Biology program may take courses from other disciplines such as BIMS, BIOL, CHEM, ESCI, GISC, FAMA, MATH and CMSS with approval from the student’s graduate committee or from the Marine Biology Program Coordinator if the committee has not yet been formed. Graduate students may also take courses from the Marine Biology and Marine Sciences Department at Texas A&M University at Galveston and Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences, and Oceanography and Biology Departments at Texas A&M University.
