Western Illinois is one of only a handful of institutions in the U.S. that offer an academic SCUBA degree. The SCUBA minor allows WIU students to gain specific SCUBA knowledge and skills for both recereation, careers and Divemaster certification. 

Most of the training takes place in the Brophy Hall swimming and diving pool, and some classes are also conducted in clear-water lakes nearby to the Macomb campus.  The SCUBA program has also taken special trips to diving locations in Florida, the Bahamas, Bonaire, Roatan, Belize, Grand Cayman, the US Virgin Islands, Cabo San Lucas, and Cozumel, Mexico.
