The course is presented much like a 100-level college course, with reading performed outside of class followed by primarily a lecture format. This course will be offered in the spring semester 2020.
Students may take Oceanography as a science elective during their junior or senior year. It is a one-semester course. Prerequisites are the successful completion of biology and chemistry. The following are the overarching units of instruction, followed by the specific objectives used during each unit.
The main goals of Oceanography are to provide students an introductory course to the interdisciplinary study of the world’s oceans. Units covered will include seafloor geology and bathymetry, seawater chemistry, atmospheric effects, ocean circulation, waves and tides, shore processes, and marine biology.
