    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course gave me a broad introduction to marine science and showed me how the ocean is connected many global processes such as climate change and pollution.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of this course was understand the real drivers of climate change and learning about the dangers that many endangered marine organisms face.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice a student taking this course to read the textbook material and take good notes during the lecture. Also, students should study for the test 3 to 4 days in advance since the exams are very comprehensive.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you ever wondered about our oceans, then I could not recommend this course enough. This class overviews how our ocean works and how it affects all parts of life on Earth. In case you are considering going into this area professionally, this course also exposes you to all fields of marine science.

    Course highlights:

    The labs were by far the best part of the course. Each week, there is one lab in which you learn about a different field of marine science. In some cases, we conducted field work on beaches and in mangrove nurseries. I learned a variety of information stretching from ecology to social policy.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Enter the class with an open mind and a love of the ocean. There are so many amazing things to learn about the ocean, and these professors are some of the most knowledgeable experts on this topic. Don't be afraid to ask questions. The professors love when students are delving into the topic as much as they are.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Even though I was not readily exposed to marine science previously, I rapidly absorbed the information. The course was sometimes slow, however, the lab was very interesting and overall exciting.

    Course highlights:

    The professors were beyond amazing due to their increased knowledge about the subject. I know now everything from tidal patterns to environmental concerns to marine anatomy. An exhilarating course I must state.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are not a marine science major then you might find this course difficult since it is not in your area of knowledge. However, as a marine science major I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend it to anyone. There is no homework and tests are not hard with enough time devotion and notes.
