OVERVIEW

Spend your summer studying the extraordinary marine life living in the waters surrounding South Caicos Island. </strong> In this specialized course, you’ll learn about the ecology and conservation of marine fauna through in-water field lectures, snorkel and/or dive sessions, and video tracking exercises.

PROGRAM HIGHLIGHT:
  • Analyze marine species abundance and diversity inside and outside protected areas. 
  • PADI SCUBA certifications are available on this program. 

SFS students live and study at the Center for Marine Resource Studies. The Center is a small, converted hotel overlooking the crystalline waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Spectacular sunsets, open-air facilities, warm sunshine, and a refreshing ocean breeze define this marine field station. A five-minute walk brings you to the small, historic town of Cockburn Harbour, where students and faculty frequently engage in community activities.
 

SUMMER COMBINED

Take back-to-back summer sessions and get the hands-on learning and skill-building experiences of an internship, while also going off the beaten path and exploring the world. Each summer session focuses on a different topic, and you’ll have time to travel independently between sessions.
