On our Summer Tropical Marine Ecology and Conservation program, you might choose to take part in specialized dive training and field research methods that result in certification with the American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS). Or you could spend the summer exploring theoretical concepts in coral reef ecology and conservation through interactive lectures and field trips to coral reef ecosystems. Or maybe do both!
