Maine Maritime Academy is very nice. Here is a breakdown of your entire schedule (sequence of courses) for the Bachelors of Science in Marine Biology.

yes, I recommended it because I live here. But it really is a fantastic college.

@Tink: awesome! do you want to study marine bio also?

Tink's avatar

@guitargirl93 Yes I do. My school has a marine biology course and that’s what I’m taking right now till I find a college that will let me take classes for it earlier.

Texas A&M-Galveston!

Not sure where you’re located but haven’t seen Texas A&M at Galveston mentioned. I haven’t been down in that area since it took a lot of damage in a hurricane, but it used to be consistently one of the top Marine Biology programs in the US.

@jlelandg beat me to it, but still a good school

Im in a Marine Biology program at Stockton College in NJ. Its really a great program from my experience and cheap which is nice since im poor. Id loveeeee to go to Scripps for grad school though.

Something affiliated with Woods Hole would be top-notch.

University of Hawaii at Manoa or University of Hawaii at Hilo

The Hilo campus offers a masters level program in conservation.
