The Marine Laboratory, set within the natural beauty of the Outer Banks of coastal North Carolina, offers a picturesque residential campus, where learning in small, intimate groups takes place and students have direct access to the area's natural resources while using the latest scientific innovations. Many of the marine science summer courses include field studies components.

The Duke Marine Lab is pleased to offer a course combination for Summer Term I that allows students to concurrently take Introductory Marine Biology for non-Majors AND Environmental Media. Students may also pair Environmental Media with Research Independent Study.

The summer courses below are open to qualified college undergraduates, graduate students, and post-baccalaureates. These courses are not open to high school students.

  • During Summer Term I students may enroll in only one course if the course is Molecular Biology, Physiology of Marine Animals, Marine Invertebrate Zoology, Research Methods in Marine Science, or General Physics.
