Delivered by Murdoch University, Coral Bay - Marine Science on Australia’s West Coast is a three-week short course allowing you to study marine science on one of the most pristine coral reefs in the world. The course begins with academic study at Murdoch University in Perth and concludes with a 12-day field camp at the Ningaloo Reef.
You will learn from faculty at Murdoch University, one of the leading marine and environmental science universities in the Southern Hemisphere. The course covers three main areas:
- The diversity and physical processes of Western Australia marine habitats, with a focus on coral reef environments;
- The biodiversity of reef organisms; and
- Biological processes, with a focus on coral reef ecosystems.
The course’s location is one of its best features. Western Australia is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets! The State is adored for its brilliant blue skies, warm sunny climate and white sandy beaches. The Ningaloo Reef is just as spectacular as the Great Barrier Reef, but accessible right from the beach!
Coral Bay - Marine Science on Australia’s West Coast is available as a summer study abroad program in Australia during the North American summer.
