Master of Science Degree Program

Welcome to the Master of Science in
Marine and Environmental Biology program at Nicholls.

This program allows students to take an expedition through Louisiana’s swamps, marshes and coastal areas. With state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and easy access to multiple field sites, our graduate students are well prepared for real world marine and environmental careers when they finish their graduate school expedition at Nicholls.

The marine and environmental biology program is thesis-based, and thesis research projects have ranged from the molecular to the ecosystem level and everywhere in between.

The Department of Biological Sciences includes 13 graduate faculty on staff and numerous adjunct faculty, including researchers at LUMCON.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about our program. We accept applications for the program at any time and appreciate your interest.

Coordinator of Biology Graduate Program
