    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend it since it is required for the marine science major. However, it is a good class despite that fact. The material is important and pretty interesting, depending on what sub-major for marine science you're interested in. He posts most, if not all, of the powerpoints online and makes sure the class knows what's really important.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the most about the ways the world works in terms of ocean movement, plate movement, and wind currents. The labs with this class helped me understand more about what I was learning in class so that was my highlight. The tests made sure you are very knowledgeable about the subject and the terms used during the course. I learned how to think big and how to put things together to make a bigger picture.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure to listen and take notes. He talks about everything on the PowerPoint, but he does draw on the board and say more about certain things than what is already outlined. Ask questions, always. And definitely meet with him privately if necessary.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was passionate about what he was teaching and about his students. The content related to every branch of marine science. It was very interesting being able to learn about geology all the way from Earth's creation to today's earth and especially how Earth's history relates directly to marine science.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how important it is to ask questions. I was confused by certain characteristics of rocks and minerals and by asking questions to my professor, I was able to understand the concepts I had been confused by. By being open about my confusions, I gained better understandings of topics which prepared me well for exams. My notes were very thorough thanks to all of the extra questions I asked and the resulting information I gained.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Ask as many questions as possible. If you are confused, that's okay. By asking questions you learn more and gain new insights into topics. Although it may seem irrelevant to your course of study, pay attention and try hard. Marine geology directly relates to every part of marine science, so this class lays the foundations of the next courses to come. Enjoy this introduction to marine science too, and be open to where the course may take you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Rocks might not be your thing at first, but he will definitely make you think they are by the end of the course.

    Course highlights:

    The labs. It sounds weird, but there were some fun labs from beach profiling to coring!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It is a weed out course along with Biological Oceanography, but if you put the time and effort into the course you will do just fine.
