Dive Leadership

The Dive Leadership emphasis provides broad-based support of sub-aquatic research, education, and recreational activities with a focus on diver safety and proficiency in the challenging waters of Northern California.

As a research, educational, and vocational asset, the Dive Leadership program is highly interdisciplinary. Diving has been used by students, faculty, and staff in the fields of marine biology, oceanography, fisheries, wildlife, geology, engineering, industrial technology, art, business administration, physical education,recreation administration, archaeology, and natural resources. The program facilitates undergraduate studies, advanced degrees, and careers in government or private sectors. The courses and certifications within the emphasis meet diving and training standards of Humboldt State University, the National Association of Underwater Instructors (NAUI), and the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS).
