Hawai‘i Pacific University

THE MARINE SCIENCE PROGRAM The Marine Science Program is a traditional science program with specialized courses in marine biology and oceanography leading to a Bachelor of Science in either Marine Biology or Oceanography. The program curriculum consists of lecture and laboratory courses in biology, chemistry, and physics as well as courses in differential calculus and integral calculus. Along with this science curriculum, students are introduced to oceanographic field techniques with a course on our 42-foot research vessel, the R/V Kaholo. Students then take in-depth survey courses in Oceanography (ocean chemistry, geology and physics) and Marine Biology (life in the sea). From there students take advanced courses in either Marine Biology or Oceanography for a degree in each respective field. The program is lab and field oriented with hands-on learning aboard the R/V Kaholo, in field labs that utilize the near-shore environment, and in well-appointed and instrumented laboratories. Students graduate from this rigorous program with in-depth knowledge and real-world skills.

R/V Kaholo

MARINE BIOLOGY MAJOR The Marine Biology major offers upper division courses ranging from molecular biology to ecology, offering students breadth and depth across the spectrum of modern biology and its marine applications. Laboratory and field work take advantage of Hawai‘i’s tropical and oceanic setting and its wealth of marine life. The R/V Kaholo supports small classes in advanced studies from fringing coral reefs in Kane‘ohe Bay to the deep sea only a few hours away. Based on superior achievement and faculty recommendation, students may participate in an honors-level research project during their final semester. Completion of the Marine Biology major prepares students to enter the private or public sector and domestic or international careers in fields such as living marine resource management, marine environmental analysis and protection, and interpretation or teaching in biology and marine science. Students who aim to become leaders in marine biology also attain the academic foundation to pursue a master’s or doctoral degree in their field. HPU also offers a Master of Science in Marine Science program for students who wish to pursue a graduate degree.

OCEANOGRAPHY MAJOR The Oceanography major is a more multidisciplinary degree deg with upper division core courses in physical, chemical, geological and biological oceanography. Laboratory and field work take advantage of Hawai‘i’s oceanic setting, and its wide variety of readily accessible marine environments, me ranging from small, shallow estuaries to the deep ocean, oce only a few hours offshore. The R/V Kaholo is used extensively for advanced field work. Based on superior ex ac achievement and faculty recommendation, students may pa participate in an honors-level research project during th their final semester. Completion of the Oceanography m major prepares students to enter careers in the private or public sectors and domestic or international fields such p as marine environmental analysis and protection, natural products p chemistry, coastal dynamics, and interpretation t or teaching the marine sciences. Students wishing to t pursue their studies at the graduate level also attain the t academic foundation to pursue a master’s or doctoral t degree in oceanography, including the Master of Dr. Christopher Winn, Dr. Kristi West, and a student adjust the Conductivity, Science in Marine Science at HPU.

Facilities HPU’s Hawai‘i Loa campus on the windward side of O‘ahu is the home of the College of Natural and Computational Sciences, which includes the Marine Science program. The 130-acre Hawai‘i Loa campus includes the academic center where classrooms and laboratories are housed. In addition, the campus has dormitories for approximately 200 students, a dining commons, indoor entertainment and exercise rooms, and outdoor facilities for soccer, softball, and tennis. The Hawai‘i Loa campus is a 15-minute shuttle ride from the downtown campus and a 20-minute shuttle ride from the Oceanic Institute, an affiliate of HPU that offers students research and hands-on training opportunities. All three sites are conveniently linked by HPU shuttle. A variety of facilities to support science education are available at the Hawai‘i Loa campus. In addition to having more than 20 instructional classrooms, the academic center includes two 24-seat teaching laboratories and a 16-seat organic chemistry lab. The center is also equipped with an instrumentation research lab as well as several laboratory preparation rooms. Laboratory facilities at the Hawai‘i Loa campus include numerous instruments for chemical and biological analysis including a high pressure liquid chromatograph and a nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer. In addition to equipment to support education and research in chemistry, biology, and physics, the R/V Kaholo located in Kane‘ohe Bay is equipped with an articulating A-frame, winch, and hydrowire to permit oceanographic sampling to depths of 2000 meters (over 6000 feet). HPU’s oceanographic instrumentation also includes a Seabird CTD and optical equipment for obtaining continuous profiles of physical and optical conditions in the sea. The Oceanic Institute (OI), an affiliate of Hawai‘i Pacific University, is a 56-acre aquaculture research facility at Makapu‘u Point. The Oceanic Institute employs scientists working on a variety of projects involving aquaculture and marine environmental monitoring and assessment. OI contains several state-of-the-art research laboratories and is adjacent to Makai Range, a concrete pier offering access to the coastal waters of windward O‘ahu. OI also operates research and educational facilities on both the Big Island of Hawai‘i and on Moloka‘i. HPU offers marine science courses at OI’s education facility and HPU students are involved in ongoing research projects under way at the institute. Each year a suite of marine science cience courses at OI’s education center is offered as a part of a special summer program in marine science. The courses cover a wide range of subjects in marine science and include both classroom activities as well as hands-on educational opportunities.

SELECT COURSE DESCRIPTIONS IN MARINE SCIENCE PROGRAM BIOL 2050 General Biology I: Cells and Organisms The first semester of a rigorous introduction to modern biology for students intending to major in the natural sciences. The course includes topics related to biological structure and function, from the molecular level in cells to the integrated workings of organisms. Darwinian evolution is emphasized as a unifying theme in biology. BIOL 3010 Hawaiian Natural History The unique biota in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial habitats of the Hawaiian Islands: evolutionary history, ecology, and human impacts on Hawaiian ecosystems are focused. BIOL 3070 Marine Vertebrate Zoology An examination of the diversity, evolution, comparative morphology, and physiology of fishes. The course surveys marine reptiles, birds and mammals. BIOL 3080 Ecology A study of the adaptive structure and function at the individual, population, community, and ecosystem levels; theoretical and experimental studies pertaining to the distribution and abundance of marine, freshwater, and terrestrial organisms. BIOL 4090 Biometry Practical application of statistics to problems in marine, environmental and biomedical science, emphasizing critical thinking and problem solving using data sets from current research topics.

Eight miles away, situated on 135 acres in Kane‘ohe, the Hawai‘i Loa campus is the site of the College of Nursing and Health Science and the College of
