Summer Term 1

May 14 - June 15, 2018

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 getting out in the water and around our local barrier islands. 

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

Course Load
-During Summer Term I students may enroll in only one course if the course is Introductory Marine Biology, Molecular Biology, Sensory Physiology of Marine Animals, Marine Invertebrate Zoology, or General Physics. Students may take Research Independent Study with Sensory Physiology, Marine Invertebrate Zoology or Introductory Marine Biology. 

-Students interested in Stats 201 may also enroll in research independent study.Students interested in research independent study should contact amy.kirkland@duke.edu
