Q&A: Can I major in oceanography and minor in marine biology?

Question by : Can I major in oceanography and minor in marine biology?
I really like the idea of oceanography where you study animals, and I know that this ties into the marine biology aspect. But I want to get the highest level of education for this. So, is it possible to minor and major in both of these?
Also, if you have any suggestions for what to take to get me on the path to research about marine animals and life, please share!

Of course.

An academic major, major concentration, concentration, or simply major is a college or university student’s main field of specialization during his or her undergraduate studies which would be in addition to, and may incorporate portions of, a core curriculum. The university department offering the major defines a framework for this specialized portion of a student’s studies, including a certain number of required courses and a certain number of freely chosen courses relevant to the major. Some majors in some universities effectively define the student’s full course of study; many others allow students considerable latitude both within their field and in their other courses. The university also generally defines general education or core education and distribution requirements.

Although many students choose their major before entering a college or university, many others select it during their first or second year of a four-year program. Some schools do not allow students to officially declare their major until the end of their second year so that students can experience a core curriculum to help them choose the most appropriate major.
