My daughter had been looking too. We used marinebio.org/marinebio/careers/us-schools

Had both undergraduate and graduate program information.

Thanks. Good info. I am starting a non-profit focused on environmental education. One of the areas will be the ocean. We have a grassroots group already started. Born out of me mentoring a high school girl, now a senior. We co-founded it. Maybe your daughter would like to learn more and either just follow or better yet get involved as a volunteer blogger or other. It is called Future Frogmen. On Facebook and other social media. Feel free to let me know if you or she want to talk and/or I can intro her to Hetal, the Hight School Senior. Richard  richardehyman@gmail

That really depends on the area of the country and what you want to specialize in. The Northeast has University of Massachusetts, Rhode Island. The University of Delaware and Rutgers had good programs as does the University of Virginia, UNC and Duke in North Carolina, Georgia and several in Florida including Florida Tech. I went to Texas A&M in their Wildlife and Fisheries program, but they also have a great Marine Science program with a campus in Galveston as mentioned by CVET. I would think that the California schools would have good programs, as does the University of Washington.  There also are many smaller colleges that have strong Marine Science programs, such as Stockton University in New Jersey, where I got my Bachelor's degree.

The ā€œUā€!

The University of Miami has a wonderful marine biology program. Check out the Rosensteil School for Ocean and Atmospheric Science.

I'm a fan of The U. Great answer. (Spoke at the school a few years ago about my time with Cousteau.)

I went there for I think 14 yrs. I owe them for everything I have. They changed my life.
