Summer Term 1

May 13 - June 14, 2019

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 fieldwork in our local waters. 

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

Course Load

  • Students may enroll in only one course if the course is Molecular Biology or Physics. Students may add research independent study to Comparative Physiology of Marine Animals or Stats 101. 
     
  • Students interested in independent study should contact gwendolyn.womble@duke.edu for instructions.

Scholarships
Tuition Scholarships are available for marine science courses during the summer (one per summer).

How to Enroll
Duke students enroll through ACES after February 19.
Non-Duke students are asked to submit an enrollment form online

Course Costs
Tuition and Room & Board costs can be found on the costs page: Summer Costs
