In my capacity as Education Coordinator at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS), I would like to announce that BIOS will offer two summer courses in 2014, which may be of interest to marine science students:
1) Tropical Marine Ecology and Conservation (July 7-25)
2) Coral Reef Ecology: Reef Response to Environmental Change (August 4 -22)..
Details on these courses and application instructions are available on our summer course webpage: http://www.bios.edu/education/summer_courses/. Partial scholarships towards course fees may be available to US, UK and Canadian applicants. Please note that the application deadline for our 2014 summer courses is April 15th.
Our summer courses, open to graduate and senior undergraduate students, capitalize on the expertise of our faculty. We routinely arrange academic credit for these courses with the student's home institution. Founded in 1903, the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences is a world-class ocean science research and education facility. BIOS believes in conducting ocean science research for human good; our mission is to transform the fields of oceanography, marine science, and ocean health through a blend of cutting edge research, comprehensive educational experiences and a commitment to share our knowledge internationally. Research at BIOS is broad-ranged and includes investigations in oceanography, marine biology, genetics and molecular biology, chemistry, air/environmental quality, optics, biogeochemistry, and climate change. BIOS hosts a variety of educational programs each year, including summer courses, semester-long courses, and research internships to university-level students. Bermuda is uniquely situated to serve as a base for research on a variety of coastal and deep water issues, and is home to some of the world's most northern coral reefs, allowing unique research and educational opportunities.
BIOS courses provide students with the opportunity to expand their studies to tropical and subtropical environments or to investigate topics in ocean science which might not be offered within the curricula of their home institutions. BIOS has quick and easy access to a diverse array of tropical marine habitats which, combined with lectures, discussions and integrated field work and laboratory exercises, provide an optimal environment for experiential learning.
Please don't hesitate to contact me should you require additional information on BIOS education programs.
