Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) has expanded its offerings to include Oceanography I and Oceanography II. The new four-credit, two-semester course enhances the College’s Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering curriculum by giving students another option for completing laboratory science degree requirements while enhancing both local and global ocean literacy.
Oceanography I (GOL 111) begins this fall running August through December. Its follow-up, Oceanography II (GOL 112), runs January 2012 through May 2012. “This course is intended for anyone interested in learning the physical, chemical, geological and biological aspects of the world’s oceans. The only prerequisites are Math 03 (Algebra I) and English 05 (Reading Improvement),” said Assistant Professor of Biology Jennifer Martin.
