Marine Science - Ecological Studies

In this class, we will cover topics such as the physical, chemical, and geological aspects of the ocean, the diversity of marine organisms, the coastal and ecology that describes the relationships between these organisms and their environments. Throughout the course, students will develop their critical thinking and reasoning, and they will understand how to apply the scientific approach to try to solve some of the most urgent environmental concerns for our oceans, as well as consider what we need to do to preserve life in the ocean. Students will partake in many lab experiments, hands-on activities, and fieldwork. Students get out of the classroom and into the field, learning while exploring the coastline, gathering samples on kayaks, making observations from stand-up paddle boards, and testing hypotheses in tide pools.

Ready for a challenge and dive deeper into ecology and ecological experimentation? In Marine Ecology — Field Studies, students learn about ecological practices, correlation VS causation, species richness and evenness, and how to measure different variables with the proper tools while observing out in the field. Field observation locations will vary, depending on tides, seasonal weather, and topics being covered over the course of the semester.
