Our Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology is one of only three marine biology programs in the state of Florida. Wetlands and estuarine marshes off the Pensacola campus, as well as the Gulf Islands Research and Education Center (GIREC) in Santa Rosa campus and the Gulf of Mexico, provide living specimens for study.
The Pensacola campus includes 300 acres of estuarine marshes and wetlands with an additional 150 acres located on Santa Rosa Island on the Gulf of Mexico containing beach dune, salt marsh, tidal flat and sea grass ecosystems.
