Majors

Marine Science

Marine science is the interdisciplinary study of the oceans, estuaries, and inland seas of the world. For more than 50 years, Jacksonville University has claimed the dolphin as its mascot. Now can you imagine living with real dolphins – plus manatee, sharks, stingrays and more – in your own backyard?

    Jacksonville University is a very good school that gives their students a lot of opportunities for success. The way that their programs are constructed allows students to have many different experiences before going out into the working world. The staff on campus are really helpful when it comes to different living situations and backgrounds. There are activities t for every type of student, and resources with in arms reach. The only thing negative I can say about the school is the affordability. One will have to find a lot of outside scholarships even when having the highest paid scholarships for academics.

    With it being a small private school, the one on one connection with professors and the staff is amazing! Jacksonville University has so much potential, the lack of student involvement discourages many to step out and become a part of the great environment Jacksonville has to offer.
    Jacksonville University is an excellent academic school. Upon graduating, I felt I was prepared for the future of my profession. The classes were challenging, I and I feel that I received a top of the line education. The professors were accessible and were available for assistance when the student needed them. I completed my Bachelor degree and have since been accepted for my Graduate degree. If you had asked me a few months ago what I would change, I would say the cost per credit, but they have since lowered their tuition. If you are looking for a top-notch education, I would recommend Jacksonville. They do offer online classes as well as the traditional educational tract.
