The Department of Marine Sciences was established in 1997 in the city of Mytilini as part of the School of Environmental Sciences.

      The objective of the undergraduate program is to educate students in the marine environment and enable them to understand physical, chemical, biological and geological processes, fisheries, aquaculture and marine technology. In addition, emphasis is placed on man made effects on the marine environment especially on the coastal zone. The students also attend courses in fisheries economics and economics of the coastal zone as well as on certain aspects of legislation related to the marine environment.
