Prospective Students

WWU and the SPMC are excited to announce that, starting in the fall of 2019, WWU will offer a new undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree in Marine and Coastal Science. This interdisciplinary degree program will be a joint venture involving SPMC, the Biology Department, the Geology Department, and the Department of Environmental Sciences.

Until this new major is formally offered, the Biology Department, the Geology Department, and the Department of Environmental Sciences at WWU all offer excellent undergraduate programs that provide a solid foundation in their respective disciplines while offering students a chance to focus on the marine sciences and to take marine-oriented courses at the Shannon Point Marine Center.

Undergraduate educational opportunities at WWU are also offered through Western on the Peninsulas, the Salish Sea Institute and the Redfish School of Change.
