The setting is volcanic, so the seabed is hard rock, all twisty and sculpted. The viewports of the submarine are very small, but it is easy to see the animals, because the water is so clear.
I happen to know a huge amount about colleges and universities that offer courses in marine science, because I happen to teach at one of the best of them them, Duke University, and to run their Marine Lab on the North Carolina coast. I do deep-sea research and exploration, but many of our professors study issues in conservation in marine systems. One professor studies marine mammals, other study sea turtles, still otehrs crabs and worms.
Other schools specialize in other areas - you can study at any major and many smaller universities or colleges in coastal states and find excellent programs in marine science.
Good luck! Go Duke!
can you tell me anymore about University of Duke? I've been researching schools a lot lately and mostly have found California, Florida and Texas schools. But i'd rather go to a school a little closer to home.(Illinois) I've wanted to be a marine biologist since i was 4.
Also could you also tell me anything about job hire rate?

Hi! my name is Delila, i am 13 yrs old and i have always wanted to be a Marine Biologist! I adore deep sea animals! I was looking for options in colleges that offer Courses in this! I am mostly facinated by abyss animals my favorite is the lantern fish! It facinates my that 99 percent of the earthd animals are in the ocean and we only have 9 percent of them documented! I want to help study and dive to find the other animals that we have no knowledge about! So my question is what would you say is the best college for someone like me?

Hey I am 14 and I am in the 8th grade. I really want to be a marine biologist. I have dreamed about that my whole life. I live on the east coast and I really want to go to college in California. I am kinda sick of the east and I want to travel. So if anyone knows of any colleges in California comment back. I am looking for places in like L.A. or Hollywood because I wanna enhance my singing too. I also like music too. So marine biology or music schools. I know it's kinda early to think about this, but I really want to know. Thanks and please help!!

Any good marine biology or marine sciences schools that are on the West Coast? I don't really feel like going back East for college.

If you don't want to pay for a UC (expensive!), I'm guessing you're already out of state though - so still lots of fees.
There's a unique program through Moss Landing Laboratories in Monterey Bay. It's a conglomerate of a bunch of CSUs, I think seven or so. Basically you take your main courses at the CSU, then you take a semester of courses at Moss Landing Laboratories along with other CSU Biology (with Marine Concentration majors)people and graduate students who are working on getting their Masters degree.
I highly recommend it, since I don't like going into debt, and that is the path I've taken - Moss Landing. I've heard really good things about Moss Landing, and am looking forward to my semester there next year. I am currently attending CSU Stanislaus which I enrolled in simply because it was cheaper, I got a better scholarship, etc...
Good luck on finding a college - hope all works out well!

Also, Sally Sue, as far as I know, looking through their list of programs and such - there's no marine biology program through Stanford. Maybe there is now, or maybe there will be. But good luck. I know too bad, can't have both good things - marine biology and Stanford - argh, such is life.
