The Changing Oceans: Colby at Bigelow Laboratory program is now available in fall only starting Fall 2012!

Changing Oceans at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in East Boothbay, Maine, offers a semester-in-residence program for Colby College students interested in gaining an in-depth understanding of oceanography and hands-on research experience through immersion in a professional laboratory environment. The intensive research experience is focused on ocean science within a changing global climate, and covers topics such as microbial oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, the ocean’s role in the global carbon cycle, molecular approaches to biological oceanography, and pelagic ecology; implications for public policy are explored within each of these topics. This unique program is a must for any student interested in becoming a marine scientist.?

Students interested in studying on this program will also be permitted to study abroad for another semester exempt from a petition.
