Marine biology is a four-credit course consisting of lectures and activities on the Wheaton College campus that prepare students for the field portion in the Caribbean during Spring Break. The field portion is conducted on the island of South Water Caye, off the coast of Belize.
While on campus, students are introduced to the terminology, and geological, physical and biological concepts of marine biology. They also learn snorkeling skills for the class time in Belize. Students then apply the geological, physical, and biological concepts that they learned prior to the trip to the marine environment on South Water Caye.
It is an exciting course where all involved come to appreciate an amazing and wonderful part of God's Creation.
