Lectures and practicals provide a framework for thinking about the marine environment in an integrated way.
A variety of data are used in practical sessions (e.g., oceanographic records, zooplankton and fish samples, video footage from the deep ocean) to support your data recording and analysis skills.
Guidance on writing an essay and feedback on your essay improves your understanding of what is expected in scientific writing and of your own strengths and weaknesses.
Case studies focused on the effects of human activities on marine systems support the development of your capacity for critical thought.
