Marine & Environmental Science, Hampton University
Information for this profile was provided by Benjamin Cuker in 2009.
Hampton University is a private four-year institution, primarily undergraduate .
Overview and Context
Students take basic sciences (biology, chemistry (2 years), physics), math through Calculus I, and courses in the major, along with the University requirements.
This is the current curriculum that has not been changed for a decade.
The strong math and science requirement makes our students more competitive for graduate programs. It is designed to allow the students to go in a variety of directions.
Goals and Assessment
The department of Marine and Environmental Science will integrate and correlate the mathematic, scientific and communications skills necessary for successful completion of:
- Courses in the general education sequence;
- Requirements or required electives in the major area, and;
- Related sciences (biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and geology).
The University conducts a Program Review every 5 years. The Chair responds to the questions, then meets with the program review committee.
