Keys Marine Lab

Program Information

This winter, dive into a hands-on learning course in marine ecology. In collaboration with the Florida Institute of Oceanography, the USF College of Marine Science is offering a partially online course in Marine Ecology Field Methods. You will complete two weeks of online readings and assignments, followed by a third week of on-site work at the Keys Marine Lab, located at mile marker 68.5 on Long Key.

Move outside the traditional classroom and textbook learning environment and actually DO science. Let your curiosity drive your learning while using and reflecting on the scientific method, exploring local fauna through field exercises, snorkeling at Alligator Reef and more.
