2002 Summer Study in Belize

General Description
The University of Mississippi 2002 Summer Study in Belize offers two courses
in marine biology taught by Ole Miss faculty. Students will live in Belize
on South Water Caye, a strikingly picturesque island shaded by palm trees on
the Belize barrier reef, the second largest expanse of barrier reef in the
world. Eight hours of undergraduate credit in Biological Sciences (Biology
445 - Introduction to Coral Reef Ecology, Biology 446 - Fishes of the
Tropics) may be earned. The courses offered are ecology-oriented classes
with lectures and daily snorkeling excursions. Students will learn about
coral-reef ecosystems from an ecological-evolution standpoint, and will
participate in student research projects. Both courses offer exciting
opportunities for students interested in field-oriented course work.
