Bahamas - Winter Break 2013-14

BIO 341 - The Bahamas: The Biology of West Indian Reef Organisms

Dive into the ecology of the West Indian Coral Reef ecosystem during this winter break study abroad program.

This experiential learning based biology course will offer marine ecology field experiences by combining lectures, labs, and discovery-oriented investigation of the marine environments of San Salvador in the Bahamas. The Coral Reef becomes your classroom as you learn to identify the reef species as well as study the life history, ecology, and behavior of these organisms.

The program will largely take place in San Salvador with some visits to nearby islands and reefs.

Prerequisite: BIOL 111 or ENVS 101
