Undergraduate students can obtain either a Bachelor of Science (BS) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Marine Science.
On a graduate level, JU offers Master of Science (MS) and Master of Arts (MA) degrees in Marine Science.
The Master’s program emphasizes a hands-on approach to learning through either the completion of an original thesis project under the mentorship of an experienced marine science researcher (MS), or a non-thesis option with a more extensive laboratory experience (MA). To ensure students the best possible preparation for their respective specializations, the program emphasizes individualized study based on student interests, background and abilities. Expected program length is two years for full-time graduate students.
