Program Information

School:Bangor University
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Marine Biology and Biological Oceanography
Description:The increasing use of the seas and coastal zones presents marine biologists with many challenges. How do we maximise sustainable fishing yields while minimising adverse ecological effects on seabirds, marine mammals and other components of the ecosystem, farm marine species without polluting coastal areas, and manage increasing tourism and industry in the coastal zone while preserving marine biodiversity? This course will give you the training in marine biology needed to consider these important ecological issues. The course differs from single honours Marine Biology in that the emphasis in tutorial material and your final-year dissertation is on applied aspects of the subject, such as fisheries, aquaculture, anthropogenic effects on marine organisms and on natural marine products. There is a placement year in Year 3 in which you have the opportunity to apply your skills in a work environment.
