Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Explain the basic structure and function of various natural ecosystems and of human adaptive strategies within those systems.
    • Describe the basic institutional arrangements (social, legal, political, economic, religious) that are evolving to deal with environmental and natural resource challenges.
    • Evaluate critically environmental and natural resource issues in light of understandings about interrelationships, ecosystems, and institutions.
    • Articulate and defend the actions they would take on various environmental issues.

Description
This is an introductory course and will involve investigations in physical (tides, currents, waves), geologic (ocean formation/physiography, plate tectonics), biological (plant/animal life and ecosystems) and chemical (composition, water properties) aspects of the world's oceans. Emphasis is on the development of scientific literacy in the context of interdisciplinary studies of the ocean environment. Relevance of oceanography to issues of human social significance and sustainability is addressed.
