This paper describes the author's modifications to an introductory college oceanography class of forty-eight students in order to add field-based projects as a significant component of the course. The field-based focus serves as the major theme around which lecture topics and lab activities are designed and implemented. Students learn oceanographic concepts in lecture and practice using oceanographic equipment and data analysis methods in lab. Student-designed field projects are then carried out
