On the Hillsborough River only a mile from Tampa Bay and 18 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, UT’s
location combined with Florida’s subtropical climate creates an environment that is hard to beat for
hands-on marine science study. Above, Dr. Heather Masonjones (right) and student researchers count
pipefish and dwarf seahorses in Tampa Bay as part of an ongoing project to assess habitat health. Minor in Marine Biology
What Will You Learn?
The marine science program is one of
the defining degrees at The University of
Tampa. Drawing from general biology and
chemistry principles and very specific marine-
related issues, the courses of study include
substantial exposure to biological, chemical
and physical aspects of marine science.
