Overview

Marine Biology at  University of Haifa  taught in English over two academic years and is a thesis track only. Upon completion of the program, students will be awarded a Master of Science in Marine Biology. 

The mission of the study program of the Department of Marine Biology is to provide students with the knowledge, conceptual and experimental skills, and experience to enable them to be productive marine scientists.

Graduate studies in the department include a research period (thesis) under the supervision of one of the department's researchers. Students combine research on a wide variety of marine organisms and questions with a wide range of obligatory and optional courses, educational cruises, research dives and lab work.

Career

The program is an experimental marine biology studies that aim to help students to become a productive marine scientists and give them the skills that can be used in a variety of subsequent careers, including:

  • Advanced research (in academia or industry)
  • Management or consultation in the field of marine biology, providing science-based guidance to decision makers.
  • Teaching and outreach in marine sciences to a variety of audiences.

Success in such careers requires a broad knowledge of the marine ecosystem and the dominant physical and chemical drivers of these systems, in-depth knowledge in their select research field, and extensive research experience through their thesis research as well as through dedicated laboratory and field courses. The program goal is to provide all of our graduates with a strong background in all aspects of the bio-marine sciences.
