Limnology & Oceanography Courses

Below is a list of approved Limnology and Oceanography track courses for both the Twin Cities and Duluth campuses. A course can fulfill only one core or elective requirement (no double counting). If you want to take a course for which you lack a prerequisite, consult with your advisor, the DGS, or the instructor to determine if you may register. All courses shown as scheduled for a future term are subject to change. 

More information about program and course requirements can be found on the Degree Requirements page and in the WRS student handbook.
