About the Program
Pierce College is the leading community college for marine biology in California with the most course offerings of any 2-year college in California - and more than most universities. Pierce's curriculum emphasizes hands-on fieldwork with most courses devoted to field study. Students study local marine environments including the kelp forests of Catalina Island. Classes are open to all students, and those who choose to major in marine biology regularly transfer to the top university programs.
