Course Description

Scientific Studies - Marine Science introduces students to the field of marine biology, taking full advantage of our proximity to the coast in conducting a number of field trips.

This course has been planned due to the interest of students in wanting a greater understanding of their local marine environment and the field of marine biology as a whole.

Scientific Studies - Marine Science has been designed with the knowledge that students have had very little background knowledge in this field.
