    MARINE BIOLOGY- USA

    Studying at the New College of Florida is giving me a complete, clear and detailed roadmap of what is relevant today in the Biology world. I am really enjoying studying here and I highly recommend this college. I applied to this college with the help of an application and it was free of cost.


    Course Curriculum - 

    The area of concentration in Marine Biology allows us to build a strong foundation in basic biological concepts, with an emphasis on marine organisms and ecosystems. This program of study is designed to prepare us for graduate or professional studies in marine biology, biological oceanography, or related fields, as well as for professional careers in marine or environmental fields. I am really enjoying this course.
