In this survey course, students will be exposed to core concepts within marine ecology, oceanography, fisheries, marine animal physiology and other related topics in the marine sciences. At the end of this course students will be able to differentiate between these fields and understand the basic concepts relative to each. Students will also be briefly introduced to major modern changes to marine ecosystems, such as ocean acidification and fisheries declines, to highlight the current worldwide demand for marine scientists. This will be a great started class for students looking to pursue a career pathway in marine science.
