It is difficult to find a broader field that deserves more attention than it gets than Marine Sciences and Oceanography. This massive umbrella discipline looks from various angles at everything worth knowing about the world’s oceans and what lies in (and sometimes above and beneath!) them, drawing from the fields of biology, chemistry, climatology, geography, geology, hydrology, meteorology, physics, and more. Understanding and protecting our oceans is critical for human advancement, and indeed survival. If this sounds interesting to you (which it should!), consider a degree in Marine Sciences/Oceanography from a German university!
