LUMCON's Summer Program
LUMCON offers summer field opportunities that give students an experience they cannot receive on their home campuses. Our courses offer exposure to the coastal and marine environment through field and lab work, as well as classroom lectures and discussion. Taking advantage of our facilities and proximity to coastal habitats, summer courses allow students to interact with their instructors and the environment on a level that fosters a unique learning experience.
LUMCON offers regular introductory and upper level summer undergraduate courses which alternate between even and odd years in June and July. Graduate credit can be earned for upper level courses by completing a week long independent study project under the supervision of the instructor(s). LUMCON also offers specialized classes, such as “Coastal Landscape Photography.” In addition, internships give qualified students the opportunity to work and learn at an active marine research station.
Any students attending a participating college or university may enroll in LUMCON classes or internships for credit at their home university. You may contact the University Education Coordinator, Nicole Cotten, for more information about course numbers at participating universities.
