MARINE STUDIES

  • contribute to the sustainable development of maritime activities with a specific emphasis on conservation of the marine environment,
  • using a new learning and didactic approach, present and achieve key qualifications such as the ability to work in a team, interdisciplinary thinking and autonomous action, and contribute to modern and practically oriented problem-solving,
  • develop and apply new methods in projects designed to address issues in marine studies,
  • demonstrate understanding of specialised and scholarly literature and write and publish specialised and scholarly articles,
  • independently seek optimal solutions to problems in their professional field by analysing the situation, linking theory and practice, etc.
  • demonstrate mastery of research approaches and specific features of research in the marine studies field,
  • show ethical behaviour and a commitment to professional ethics in the field of pollution of the marine environment.

Assesment and completion:

Students' knowledge is assessed by means of practical exercises and seminar papers, and also via products, projects, performances, services, etc. and by examinations. Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

Progress:

In order to progress to the next year, full-time and part-time students must have completed the course units prescribed by the study programme (lectures, practical classes, written tests, seminars, etc.) and gained the prescribed number of credits from the study programme by passing examinations.
