Step out of the classroom and into the field by enrolling in our Hawaii field studies program this winter! We begin our study of the biology of Hawaii with pre-trip classes at North Lake, followed by eleven days in Hawaii, from January 1 to January 11, 2015. In Hawaii, on the island of Kauai, students will work in tropical rainforest and tropical costal deserts, explore coral reefs, and hike through the mountains. Two class days on campus wrap up the experience.
This program has evolved over 30 years and reflects our experience guiding hundreds of students through the awe-inspiring biodiversity of Hawaii. Many students can use the Biological Field Studies credits to meet laboratory science or major requirements.
