Marine Science Capstone - GEOS335

In this interdisciplinary capstone unit students consolidate their learning across the biology, earth and environmental science subjects that comprise the Bachelor of Marine Science degree and prepare themselves for appropriate transition to the next stage of their careers. This involves active reflection on prior learning, building and articulating a positive self-understanding, exploring opportunities, clarifying goals, acquiring adequate employability and workplace skills, and building linkages with professional communities and industries. A series of activities including guest speakers will facilitate students' reflection on their studies and desires for their own career paths. The course also covers key topics such as communicating science, the publication and review process, research ethics, and career pathways.
