Our mission is to educate broadly trained life scientists, to carry out basic and applied biological research, to disseminate the results of our research, and to provide meaningful service to the University, the local community, and the world.
This is a public university founded in 1861. The campus is located in Seattle. Students interested in Marine Biology will often pursue Bachelor’s degrees in Oceanography, Biology or Aquatic and Fishery Science with a declared minor in Marine Biology. Since the school is strategically located between The Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean, students are exposed to a significant amount of hands on research work.
