Marine Biology



The objective of this training is to prepare young scientists for doctoral studies, with a specialisation in marine biological sciences and to make the link with environmental issues related to the evolution of the oceans. The training also leads to research jobs related to the professional fields of marine biology to which are added new professional opportunities within the organisations in charge of the upstream fisheries and aquaculture sector.


The diploma responds to a strong demand for training of excellence through fundamental and applied research in the fields of the study of marine ecosystems (training program 1), in the field of the biology of marine organisms (training program 2), and in the field of ecosystem-based management of fisheries resources and aquatic environments (training program 3 / in Rennes, France)
