You might not think of the Upper Midwest when you think of marine science…but if your passion is the water and its creatures, you'll be happily surprised how much we have to offer! In fact, there's an entire Reef Team experience where you can care for tons of tropical and other marine life right here on campus. 

Or, if getting closer to the ocean is more your style, this minor will take you across the country for two summer sessions at the Gulf Coast Research Lab (GCRL) in Ocean Springs, Mississippi.
