Biology, Microbiology, and Animal Behavior majors,
This year’s Tropical Biology Program in Grand Cayman will concentrate on coral reef ecology and conservation and give students first-hand experience diving on some of the best-developed reefs in the Caribbean. The program will be held on Grand Cayman Island, with tentative dates May 9-19, 2017. You must be scuba certified to go on the program. Scuba instruction will be available during the second eight weeks of the Spring 2017 semester.
Participating students will earn 3 credit hours of BIOL-L 433 Tropical Biology. How this counts for you:
- Biology B.A. and standard Biology B.S. – counts as an upper-level approved BIOL lab in your major
- Animal Behavior B.S. – counts as a formal lab in your major
- Biology B.S. with any Area of Concentration: counts as an elective (like Folklore or Gender Studies). Does NOT fulfill an upper lab in your major.
- Microbiology B.A. and Microbiology B.S.: counts as an elective (like Folklore or Gender Studies). Does NOT fulfill an upper lab in your major.
More information is available on the Overseas Study website at http://overseas.iu.edu. The program is listed under IU Programs, Cayman Islands.
Deadline for applications is this Monday, January 30, 2017!

We hear tremendously positive feedback on this program from participants. Even if you weren’t planning to spend some of this weekend working on an application – think about it!
