If you are a newly admitted student who has yet to attend an Orientation & Course Selection Day, you should start with the information for Admitted Students.

Information about each of the Undergraduate Programs in CNMS is maintained by the Department under which the major falls. Below are the links to the Undergraduate Program information provided by each CNMS Department, and the majors that fall under their administration. If you have yet to declare one of the CNMS majors, or are pursuing a minor offered by a CNMS Department, please consider following the CNMS Advising Group on myUMBC (declared majors are automatically enrolled in this group).

Note: There are no undergraduate degree programs offered by the Department of Marine Biotechnology in the College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (research opportunities do exist). Students considering a career in Marine Biology may wish to prepare themselves for graduate study in that field by majoring in Biological Sciences, Environmental Science, or by developing their own degree program through the Interdisciplinary Studies program.
