AQUATIC  RESOURCES (ISAR)

 

The Interdisciplinary Studies in Aquatic Resources (ISAR) program offers one 6-credit course at the 100-level:

AQUA 100 – Introduction to Aquatic Resources: Natural Science Applications

This course is a required first-year course for all students in the ISAR program (those in both the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science), and is restricted to students in that program.

Students who are not currently in the Aquatic Resources program, but for whom this course is of interest, and who may be interested in exploring the options available in this interdisciplinary field of study, are encouraged to contact the program coordinator or program assistant for more information. Interested students may still opt into this program.

An online AQUA 100 section is often offered in the Spring Session (May-June).  This section of the course is for non-ISAR students only.
