Marine Lab

 Spend Summer at the Duke University Marine Laboratory!

The Marine Laboratory, set within the natural beauty of the Outer Banks of coastal North Carolina, offers a picturesque residential campus, where learning in small, intimate groups takes place and students have direct access to the area’s natural resources while using the latest scientific innovations. Many of the marine science summer courses include field studies components.

All students are required to live on campus. Advance registration is open and will remain open until the course is filled, but space is limited.
