The Oceanography summer study abroad program in Pohnpei, Micronesia will take place June 22-July 20, 2013. This class is focused on coastal ecosystems in a changing climate, and will provide students with first hand field experience studying coral reefs, mangrove forests, estuaries, and atolls, and the ways that human activities are affecting those ecosystems.
The application deadline is February 15th, 2013. Some foundation in the natural sciences is useful, but students from a wide range of backgrounds and majors are encouraged to apply. More information and the online application is available at http://studyabroad.washington.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgram&Program_ID=11114
