Exploring the relationships between humans and marine environments
Marine Studies focuses on ecology of the marine environment (physical and biological oceanography) and the relationships between humans and the marine environment. Students have a foundation in life sciences, physical sciences, human ecology, conservation and resource management, and a broad scope of courses in literature, politics, economics, and humanities. Many courses take place at the College’s Kino Bay Center for Cultural and Ecological Studies in Bahia Kino, Sonora, Mexico. The Center sits amid the Sonoran Desert on the coast of the Midriff Island region of the Gulf of California. The area abounds in marine habitats, seabirds, marine mammals, fish, mangrove estuaries, and coastal flora and fauna. Students explore marine environments, study human interactions with the sea, and participate in marine conservation research projects.
