Summer Courses at BIOS: Training the Next Generation of Scientists
The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) offers a suite of university-level summer courses, designed to immerse students in the study of marine science, with a program of coursework and research that is unique in marine science education. Founded in 1903, BIOS is a world-class ocean science research and education facility.
BIOS summer courses in marine science provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to expand their studies into subtropical environments and/or to investigate topics in ocean science, which are not offered within the curricula of theirhome institutions. BIOS has quick and easy access to a diverse array of subtropical marine habitats which, combined with lectures, discussions and integrated field work and laboratory exercises, provide an optimal environment for experiential learning.
