Belize Marine Biology

This hands-on field course will introduce students to various tropical marine ecosystems utilizing the coast of Belize as its study site. The course will focus on the ecology of these systems as well as examining environmental impacts and conservation efforts as they relate to the cultures and politics of Belizean society. This is a course, not a tour, so our main objective in designing the mechanics of this class is to get you to look closely, and to synthesize what you see!
