What is a Bimini field course? This cross-listed, 200-level Field Course in Cetacean Ecology gives students the chance to learn about dolphin behavior, ecology, cognition and research – but not just through books and lectures. You’ll learn by actually observing wild dolphins, from the boat and in the water! This isn’t a traditional study abroad course; it is a research course at DCP’s active field site. That means it’s a lot of work packed into a short time and you’ll actually help collect real data that will be used by real scientists. All in an amazing island setting and for school credit.
