The Department of Biology has four faculty members who participate in the Marine Biology graduate program. If admitted to the program, students who have arranged to work under the direction of a Biology faculty member will be housed in the Department of Biology and will have access to all the graduate resources of the Biology Department. In addition, they will have access to classes and research resources at all three participating campuses.
