Current Student in the Marine Biology Minor

  • The listserv is where the most pertinent Marine Biology minor details will be pushed out – things like course offerings, changes to minor requirements, Friday Harbor opportunities, upcoming events, etc. Minors’ UW email addresses will automatically be subscribed to the listserv. If you would like to register an additional email address, please email marbiol@uw.edu. Please note: If your UW email address forwards to your personal email you might get duplicate emails if you register both. Please make a habit of opening and reading all emails from the listserv.
  • Jobs, internships, volunteer, research, and funding opportunities will be posted to the Marine Biology Student Services Blog & the new LinkedIn University of Washington Marine Biology Student Group. I will also post general Marine Biology advising tips, community events, and program stories to these sites. If you have appreciated having these types of opportunities come directly to your inbox, please follow/join one or both of these groups (I recommend LinkedIn) and sign up for a daily or weekly email digest.
  • Want to connect with other students, alumni, and  marine biology enthusiasts in the community? “Like” our new Facebook Page and/or follow us on Twitter The Marine Biology at University of Washington Facebook Group will be slowly fazed out this year. The group will still be moderated, but the bulk of the communication will happen on the Page.
  • Due to student interest, we will be looking into the most effective ways to incorporate YouTube and Instagram into communication over the coming year. Stay tuned….
  • Not sure where to start? I will be offering Marine Biology social media and online tools training sessions during summer and Autumn Quarter. Sign up for session today!
