Earth Science Major - Marine Geosciences Track

About the Program

The Marine Geosciences Track at Salisbury University encourages you to get your hands dirty and your feet wet as you explore the Eastern Shore’s many coasts, island barriers and river systems. Located near the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, SU is in an ideal place to study marine science and oceanography. A key feature of SU’s program is our commitment to field work and experiential studies. Many of the core and elective courses include class field trips and intensive, hands-on lab activities.

Students are able to choose from a wide range of electives in geology, biology, physics and other disciplines to create a resume that fits their unique career goals. Students who complete this track will be able to pursue marine science jobs in both the public and private sectors, as well as building a strong foundation for those continuing on to graduate studies.
