Explore Science Around The World!

Summer 2016 Study Abroad in Fiji!

Trip Overview

Travel to Fiji with Dr Richard Murphy, marine biologist with Jean-Michel Cousteau's Ocean Futures Society, and Jill Caporale, professor of biology at NOVA, to explore Marine and Terrestrial Ecology, Environmental Science, Cultural Values and Sustainable Living across the Curriculum. This course is geared for individuals of all disciplines and designed to increase your understanding of the ecological concepts and relationships between humanity and nature, with a focus on how our society can create more sustainable communities. 

The approximate cost for this trip is $2800.00.   This fee includes accommodations, most meals, boat fees, snorkel rental, and land transportation. 
The cost does not include airfare, travel insurance and course registration fees for BIO 299 or ENV 299.

There are no academic prerequisites, however, all participants must be in good physical condition, and since we snorkel the reefs, be a good swimmer.
