Most biology students experience science in the classroom, with textbooks and test tubes. But North Lake College offers the chance to learn in the real world, with the Biological Field Studies program. Head to the Texas gulf coast and discover ecosystems on land and in the Gulf of Mexico.
Weekend pre-trip classes at North Lake start in March 2015, building to a week-long trip in May, when the class heads to the outdoor laboratories in and around Port Aransas. The Texas coastal bend is a unique mix of forest, arid southwestern, and subtropical habitats, and students see ecosystems on land and by boat.
Hundreds of students have participated in Biological Field Studies with NLC for over 35 years. Classes in the program can be used to satisfy major or laboratory requirements when transferring to many Texas public universities.
