Course Description Presents scientific ways for understanding global phenomena and for developing policy to achieve positive outcomes of globalization. Interdisciplinary approaches require new analytical models. Visiting professors may collaborate with instructor. Interdisciplinary approaches as well as analytical models will be used to understand marine environmental issues and their impacts on global civilization. The course will be divided into five topic units, each representing a contemporary challenge, both in terms of the acquisition of scientific knowledge and its application to a global environmental issue, these are:
Topic Area 1 - Marine Resources and International Policy Topic Area 2 Societal Hazards Beneath the Sea Topic Area 3 - Global Marine Ecosystems Topic Area 4 - Global State of Marine Fisheries Topic Area 5 - Ocean and Global Climate Change
Course Goals and Student Learning Objectives Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
1) analyze scientific evidence to demonstrate an understanding of the physical, chemical and biological processes that drive the ocean, and therefore the earth system, on a global scale, and humankind's relationship to them,
2) manage empirical information, write syntheses, and compose a written paper about the global ocean based on scientific evidence,
3) apply the methods of science to problems impacting the global ocean and humankind,
4) explain through discussion (electronic) how the interconnectedness of human societies and the marine environment is present at local, regional, and global scales, and
5) explain through research that addressing global ocean problems requires analyses of data using the methods of science.

Nature of Weekly Work and Responsibilities of Students Students in the class will play an active role in their learning through the timely, but self-paced, completion of online virtual expeditions in which students take on the role of a research oceanographer studying global issues. Students are also required to participate in electronic discussions, often problem-based and issue-oriented, with other students on issues based on
