Gulf Stories

About the Course

Mother Mother Ocean (MMO 101) was the first in a series of Gulf Stories, all highlighting UWF’s deep connection and engagement with the Gulf of Mexico. This free, open online course showcased the work of five exceptional faculty researchers and touched on everything from history and archaeology to the economy to the environment. Here are a few details about the course and what our participants accomplished.
