MSCI 696 - Distributed Courses in Marine Science

Fall, Spring, and Summer Credits: (1-3) Staff

This is an avenue through which students can participate in distributed courses to gain experience and training in topics not covered through regular catalog courses and not amenable to other special topics courses (MSCI 697 or 698). Distributed courses are those that are conducted on-line or through other distance-learning methods, that contain significant content from faculty outside of VIMS and William & Mary and for which no other mechanism for awarding credit is available (e.g., transfer of credit from another institution). VIMS faculty are responsible for coordinating the approval of the course and agree to take responsibility for delivery of course content, ensuring student participation, providing a mechanism for addressing questions from students, and assessing the student’s learning of the material. Subjects will be announced prior to registration and after approval by the Educational Policy Committee (EPC).
