    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I love this course and feel like it is very informative. A really great place to begin your studies in Marine Science.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of lab skills, you think you know how to do a lab really well until they make you site in Marine Science format and write a 10 page long paper.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    TAKE GOOD NOTES, many teachers in the MS department do quizzes, constantly study your notes and you'll be alright for them and the big test!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is a brief overview of how different the ocean works, including tides, currents, composition, and how it is influenced or influences other natural systems such as wind. The labs are very active and hands on, we went out into the bay collecting water samples and different specimen to observe and make our own experiments. You also learn how to properly right a lab report and cite your sources! Very important!

    Course highlights:

    I love the labs and applying the material I learned in class with real life research. We got to make our own experiments and see what did or did not work. The professor was very nice, he explained what would be happening in class and lab very thoroughly. He loves to joke around and have fun with the class, and be sure to keep your phone away! He loves calling people out. The professor often gave examples and videos to further explain hard concepts, which really helped me.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    For this course you definitely need to pay attention in class! He does have a powerpoint but most of what he says is not on it! Oh, and READ THE BOOK. Most of what he says is in the book, which makes it crucial to stay on top of your reading. He will go into more detail than the book as well. The examples he gives and discusses in class will most likely be on the test so remember to write it down. He gives out a list of vocabulary terms and concepts you should know for the test. Make flashcards, easiest way I know how to study for this class. Also the sample questions he gives, answer them in as much detail as you can for review. They will either show up as the essay in the end or parts of the answer will be fill in the blank. Oh, and most importantly, have fun!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this course for those who are actually interested in the material. This course is rigorous, but very interesting. There is a lot of material ranging over a wide field to cover in a short period of time. This course not only covers the biological aspects of the ocean, but also the abiotic factors that create the ocean.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course was the fact that there were a multitude of subjects covered, from gyres and currents to coral reefs and ocean wildlife, there were so much knowledge to be gained . I absolutely loved the variety of information learned.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is not a course you should take if you want and "easy A". If you don't put in the work then it will be incredibly difficult to get the grade you want. Going to office hours and emailing the teacher if you have questions are real lifesavers.
