Duke University Integrated Marine Conservation Program
The Nicholas School of the Environment Marine Laboratory at Duke
University is offering an unparalleled educational opportunity from July
13 to August 14, 1998. Duke's Integrated Marine Conservation Program
teaches the principles necessary for the conservation and preservation of
the coastal and oceanic environment. The focus is on interdisciplinary
problem solving--using natural and social science theory to resolve real
world environmental problems.
The Duke summer faculty will be joined by distinguished scholars
from around the country for this intensive five week program. Visiting
faculty include: Tundi Agardy, Conservation International; Jim Carlton,
Williams College; Paul Dayton, Scripps Institute of Oceanography; and
Elliott Norse, Marine Conservation Biology Institute.
Participants in the Integrated Marine Conservation Program usually
enroll in the program's 'core' course (Conservation Biology and Policy)
and one of five elective courses offered concurrently. Enrollment in any
one course is also possible.
Scholarships are available, including several earmarked for
international students. In order to receive full consideration,
applications for general scholarships must be received by March 1.
Applications for international student scholarships must be received by
April 1. Applications for the Integrated Marine Conservation Program will
be accepted until the program is full.
