Fall Semester

Fall 2019

The Fall Semester is an intense, immersive, marine sciences experience at the fourth-year, senior undergraduate level. We inspire investigation, promote critical thinking and offer students the opportunity to conduct an independent research project.

Students take a full course load of five courses. Three courses run in successive 3 1/2-week blocks while two courses extend throughout the duration of the program. Classes are scheduled from Monday to Friday, and involve lectures, discussions, laboratory, and field excursions.

Prerequisites: Students must have taken courses in Ecology and Statistics, and courses in Invertebrate Zoology and Non-Vascular Plants are highly recommended.


Application Deadline: March 31, 2019

Questions? Student ambassadors at your university have studied at BMSC and love to answer questions from prospective students.  In addition, don’t hesitate to contact the University Programs office at BMSC.
