Marine Biology


The wetlands, estuaries and continental shelf of Louisiana provide one of the world's great settings for the study of marine biology. For more than 35 years Nicholls has excelled at preparing undergraduates for graduate study or direct employment in the marine and environmental sciences. Our students are personally mentored by Ph.D. faculty who involve them in their research program. Our students also have opportunities to work and study at the Louisiana Universities Marine Consortium, a world-class coastal research facility only 50 miles away.

Louisiana students with TOPS scholarships can study marine biology at Nicholls tuition-free. For students from outside Louisiana, Nicholls offers very reasonable tuition.
