This essay is essentially free form and up to you, with the following requirement: You must write an essay that relates the science of Oceanography/Oceanology – any aspect of it – to your chosen major, field of study, or career path. I strongly recommend that you FIRST choose a topic, SECOND describe the basic science of that topic, and THIRD relate that science to your own interests or major. Be creative, be original. Regarding your essay topics: I want a personal essay that shows some understanding of the topics in this class in relation to your own major or areas of interest. NO NEED for a research paper. My major is business major and anything related to business will be fine. My suggestion for a topic would be a fight over fresh water.
