Essex’s marine biology course explores a fascinatingly complex world of whales, coral reefs, fish, deep sea trenches, coastal lagoons, sea ice, and tropical seagrass beds. The vast majority of life on earth is found under the sea; but exactly how much remains unknown, since there is so much still to be explored. Students will be taken on a journey of discovery from the poles to the tropical reef systems of the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Essex works on ecosystems from estuaries and coastal environments to oceanic systems, and on conservation and resource management. Students will be equipped with expert knowledge of marine biology through study of essential core modules and the flexibility to specialise in the areas that interest you most, including: The major types of marine communities, including aquatic mammals and fish; Direct and indirect human impact on the marine environment; Coral reefs, seagrass beds and mangrove systems; Marine and freshwater taxonomy and biodiversity; Diving and snorkel-based practices. There are numerous opportunities to go on field trips as part of this course, although please note that these may be subject to additional costs.
