OCE 1013C - Aquatic Environmental Science


4 Credit Hours
(Offered as needed)

This course will investigate living and non-living components of aquatic ecosystems. Students will learn how aquatic ecosystems function naturally as well as how human activity can alter these ecosystems. The course is built around field trip(s) and lab work during which students will obtain water quality data from a local aquatic environment. Through field trip(s) and lab work, students will gain appreciation for the local relevance of course material. For both majors and non-majors, a key outcome of such experiences will be gaining experience in using inquiry and reasoning through the scientific method and becoming comfortable with data, technology, and instrumentation. Problem-solving, interpretation of data, and class discussions will be key.
