CCU students participate in Biology of Sharks program in Bahamas
Coastal Carolina University's Department of Marine Science offers an exceptional opportunity for field experience in Biology of Sharks at the Bimini Biological Field Station (BBFS) in the Bahamas each May. The Maymester course features lectures, discussions, analysis of research papers, frequent field trips, video presentations, and personal encounters with several species of large, actively feeding and free-swimming sharks. Students have a chance to earn up to four credit hours for their graduate or undergraduate program. Seventeen CCU students participated on the trip this year during the May semester.
Biology of Sharks is the course that keeps on giving: after graduating, many students return to the Bimini Biological Field Station as volunteers or interns, and several have earned paid positions at the lab.
