The Academic Program

The marine biology specialization is a University wide program focusing on recent advances in the understanding of marine systems at the ecological, organismic, and cellular-molecular levels. Students can select courses, advisors, and research opportunities from a wide range of specialties, including: marine botany, ecology, genetics, virology, microbiology, and zoology, aquaculture, behavioral biosystematics, biological oceanography, coral reef biology, fisheries and molecular biology.

The marine biology specialization is available to graduate students in botany, microbiology, oceanography, and zoology. Prospective graduate students should apply first to one of these programs. Applications from students who have been accepted to botany, microbiology, oceanography, or zoology who have also indicated a desire to specialize in marine biology are reviewed by the Marine Biology Admissions Committee.

Students specializing in marine biology supplement the courses required for a degree in their chosen field with courses specific to marine biology. The actual selection is determined by the student in consultation with his or her advisor. Graduate student research is carried out in the laboratories of the graduate faculty. These include laboratories in Edmondson Hall, Snyder Hall, the St. John Laboratory (botanical sciences), the Marine Science Building, the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (located on Coconut Island in Kaneohe Bay), the Bekesy Laboratory, and the Kewalo Laboratory of the Pacific Biomedical Research Center. Research capabilities include DNA sequencing using PCR technology; video and acoustic recording for ecological and behavioral studied of coral reef and planktonic organisms; transmission and scanning electron, ultraviolet, and light microscopy; electrophoretic analysis; flow cytometry; and radioisotope tracer studies.

Certificate Offered: Graduate Resource Management Certificate

The Graduate Resource Management Certificate is a cooperative program primarily involving the College of Social Sciences (anthropology, economics, geography), the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (agronomy and soil science, agricultural and resource economics), and the East-West Center (Program on Environment, Program on Resources: Energy and Minerals). Because of its diverse topical components, multidisciplinary faculty, and practical application throughout Asia and the Pacific, the program is ideal for students who are pursuing graduate studies in traditional disciplines and also seeking expertise in environmental resource management.

This program provides students with specialized training in an area that augments their primary field and develops their pragmatic problem-solving and decision-making skills through analysis of real-world problems. Any student who has previously been admitted as a classified graduate student at the University of Hawai'i at Mânoa is eligible to apply for admission to this certificate program. Interested applicants should contact their adviser or any representative of the program in the collaborating departments and institutions.

To earn this certificate, students are expected to complete 15 credit hours, at least 9 of which are at the graduate level. For more information, contact the program office.
