Academy of Marine and Environmental Science

Offerings vary by school campus


Credit 1

The study of zoology with particular emphasis on the morphology and systematics of both vertebrates and invertebrates. In addition, the students should acquire knowledge in ethology, evolution, and human ecology (including an introduction to the biosphere and biodiversity). 


Credit 1

This course introduces students to the marine environment. The course gives students a better understanding and appreciation of the various fields in marine science.  While the content focus of this course is consistent with the Marine Science I course, students will explore these concepts in greater depth. In general, the academic pace and rigor will be greatly increased for honors level course work.


Credit 1

The AP Environmental Science course is designed to engage students with the scientific principles, concepts, and methodologies required to understand the interrelationships within the natural world. The course requires that students identify and analyze natural and human-made environmental problems, evaluate the relative risks associated with these problems, and examine alternative solutions for resolving or preventing them. Environmental science is interdisciplinary, embracing topics from geology, biology, environmental studies, environmental science, chemistry, and geography. 


Credit 1

This course focuses on the application of science (chemistry, physics, and biology) to the criminal and civil laws that are enforced by police agencies in a criminal justice System. It Includes the Investigation of Fingerprinting, Fiber Analysis, Ballistics, Arson, Trace Evidence Analysis, Poisons, Drugs, Blood Spatters, And Blood Samples. Students Are Taught the Proper Collection, Preservation, and Laboratory Analysis of Various Sample. 


Credit 1

This continuation of Forensic Science I focuses on the analysis of evidence and testing that takes place within this setting.  We will examine some of the basic scientific principles and knowledge that guide forensic laboratory processes such as those testing DNA, toxicology, and material analysis techniques such as microscopy, chromatography, odontology, mineralogy, and spectroscopy will be examined.
