2022 Summer Field Courses

We are excited to announce a completely new
BMSC Summer Program in 2022!


The SUMMER CORE PROGRAM is equivalent to a full semester at your home university.

Motivated by the success of our Fall Program in Marine Sciences, and to mitigate risks associated with our relaunch during COVID-19, we will be offering a bundle of three core courses for 24 students who will stay throughout the summer.

Students will be required to take the first two core courses, running for 12 weeks, with the option to add-on a third course – Directed Studies in Marine Sciences. Click “view details” below to see the credit value per course at your home university.
