APU’s minor in marine biology helps you meet career demands in an analytical world

Your capacity to solve problems – big and small, on the job and in your personal life – is a product of some very specific skills.

To analyze effectively, you need to gather information, design and test solutions, and then make plans. Along the way, you’d probably want to explain your logic to others.

Gathering, designing, testing, planning, explaining.

These analytic skills are the framework of science-based coursework you’ll find when you pursue a minor in marine biology at Alaska Pacific University.

The marine biology minor requires 24 credit hours. It’s a valuable choice for APU students concentrating in fields as diverse as outdoor studies, education, liberal studies and any discipline where a strong ability to conceptualize problems and communicate solutions is your path to success.
