Marine Science Program at OCS

Welcome to the OCS Marine Science page!

The Georgia coast is home to a dynamic estuary that is used as a research lab by scientists from all over. It is also used as a lab for OCS scientists. Students in the marine science program study oceanography and marine biology associated with our local estuary. Students maintain over 30 saltwater aquariums in the marine science lab that house local estuarine animals. Students also study in the field with trips to the marsh, through maritime forests, aboard research vessels, and on our barrier islands. Students at OCS are also the beneficiaries of expert knowledge from The Ossabaw Island Foundation, The Pin Point Heritage Museum, Bull River Cruises, and researchers from Savannah State University, the University of Georgia, and Georgia Tech. An emphasis on conservation, current issues, and research is maintained throughout the program.
