The Marine Sciences Program at the University of Delaware is highly integrative and students are exposed to a wide range of subjects in their course work and research projects, from molecular biology and biochemistry to ecology and ecosystem studies.
Areas of faculty interest within the program span the ecology, physiology, genetics, and molecular biology of plants, animals and microbes. Faculty research specializations are particularly concentrated in: microbial physiology and molecular ecology; larval ecology and molecular biology; chemical ecology; fisheries ecology; aquacultural genetics and genomics; wetland restoration.
In addition to the sophisticated classroom and laboratory facilities available, students enjoy ready access to a variety of marine ecosystems near the Hugh R. Sharp Campus in Lewes: dunes, salt marshes, mudflats, estuaries, and the Atlantic Ocean.
Field research takes place from the Arctic to the Antarctic, in environments ranging from coral reefs to deep- sea hydrothermal vents, to local salt marshes and coastal waters.
