Oceanography provides an excellent opportunity to gain knowledge about the biological, physical, and chemical properties of marine ecosystems. Through an interdisciplinary approach, the oceanography topics are explored through hands-on labs, research projects and video field trips. Oceanography encourages students to investigate both the marine world and the environmental issues that people must consider when using the oceans many resources.
Students must have a basic understanding of the Scientific Method and how scientists conduct research. Students should have some background in general biology, physics and chemistry, such as gained from a Physical Science or General Science course.
