UNC Department of Marine Sciences 50th Anniversary logo imageMarine Sciences found a home at UNC in 1969 after approval of the Curriculum in Marine Science by the State Board of Education. Since then, the program has grown to include 18 full-time faculty and awarded more than 360 graduate degrees. This year we are celebrating half a century of advances in research and education through a series of events. We hope you’ll join us to learn about the rich department history, connect with our student and faculty colleagues, and plan the next 50 years of marine science at UNC!
