The Semester by the Bay program is accepting applications now for undergraduate students interested in studying marine mammals, marine biology, ecology, and environmental sciences this fall semester, August 29-December 16, 2016, in the beautiful seaside town of Homer, Alaska. Our courses (e.g., Marine Mammal Biology, Marine Biology, Ichthyology, etc.) offer students numerous unique experiential learning opportunities in the lab and field, such as the behavioral ecology of beluga whales, sea otters, Steller sea lions and harbor seals; acoustics of harbor porpoises; marine mammal skeletal articulation (killer whale to be constructed in 2016); seining, identification and articulation of estuarine and marine fishes; behavior of seabirds at island rookeries. Other potential courses include Undergraduate Seminar on Conservation of Marine Mammals; Science and Writing; Environmental Economics & Policy, Geology of Kachemak Bay, Applied Statistics for the Sciences, History of Alaska, !
among others. Additionally, most students participate in community-based internships and/or service-learning volunteer opportunities with governmental or non-governmental researchers while studying with us at the Kachemak Bay Campus of Kenai Peninsula College – University of Alaska Anchorage. KPC offers in-state tuition for all US students, and many internships include free or significantly reduced housing with our internship community-partner agencies (USFWS, NOAA, KBNERR, AMNWR, Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies; Alaska SeaLife Center).
