The new marine science degree program at Northenet University aims to bring science to life and help students discover the joys and challenges of living and working in the ocean.
It’s called the Marine Sciences Curriculum and it’s the culmination of an eight-year process that began with the introduction of a new curriculum to Northeastern students in the fall of 2014.
The curriculum was designed to teach students about life and the ocean, while also developing them as marine scientists.
The new program is aimed at students who are currently enrolled in a graduate degree program, but want to continue learning about marine science and technology and want to go to graduate school in marine science.
It’s called an advanced marine science major.
Students take a three-week intensive marine biology course in the summer and then are expected to complete two semesters of oceanography at Northende.
They learn about how currents, currents and storms are affecting the environment, how humans and animals interact with the ocean and how humans can protect themselves from the hazards of the ocean environment.
The students also learn about oceanographic surveys and research methods, the importance of coral reefs and how to conduct research in the marine environment.
They also learn how to operate and manage research vessels and how the ocean works with the environment.
“The students who choose this program have a great opportunity to experience and interact with a whole new way of life, one that is very different than the way things are today,” said Dr. Robert S. Cottrell, the associate dean for science and education at Nortneet.
“In addition to the science that they’re learning, they’re also learning about life, about marine life, which is really something that’s really unique to them and to the ocean,” said Cottell.
Northeastern’s marine science program was developed by the College of Arts and Sciences and the College Ocean Science.
In the fall, the program was expanded to include a marine engineering program.
In the new program, students will be exposed to the importance and impact of marine biology and marine science through a hands-on, experiential learning experience.
The coursework is designed to introduce students to marine biology, marine science, marine technology, marine ecology and environmental science.
“This is a program that will teach you how to take a course on the ocean that will be something you will have to take every year in order to keep up with the latest developments in the field,” said Mark Bostick, associate dean of students at Northeets.
The Marine Science Curricula course will be delivered through a two-day course called the Ocean Science and Technology program.
The program also includes a lab, which students can take as they progress through the program.
The program is open to students of all ages and is taught by an oceanographer, an environmental ecologist and an oceanography professor.
Students who want to learn more about the marine science process will be able to access an online resource, as well as a course catalog.
