ENV 319: Marine Communities

Credits 4
Integrative Experience Course
Integrative Experience

Marine Communities is a field course where the student will learn about and apply aspects of several disciplines including biology, ecology, geology, ornithology, as well as others. As we study these topics we will bring together a broader picture of understanding as we tie all of it in with socio-economic aspects unique to these communities. We will explore how humans both impact and have been impacted by marine communities as well as the responses to these impacts. We will use Martha’s Vineyard as a living classroom to gain a deeper understanding of these topics and venture to apply our understanding to other marine communities around the world. There is an additional fee for this course; please see course schedule for details.
