Oceanography is the branch of science that deals with the physical and biological properties and phenomena of the sea

Oceanography courses provide a sound introduction to the marine environment which comprises 71% of the earth’s surface. The courses are designed for both science and non-science majors and are fundamental for students planning to major in oceanography.

Students planning to transfer to a four-year institution and major in oceanography should consult with a counselor regarding the transfer process and lower division requirements.
