Academic Credit:  Undergraduate credit will be given by Eckerd College,
and graduate student credit by University of South Florida.
See attached information on graduate credit.  Due to the intensity of the
course, 2 course credits, equivalent to 7 semester hours will be awarded.
One course credit will be for Biology of Marine Mammals, the other for
Conservation of Marine Mammals.

Costs:  $3,000 per student, which includes room and board, tuition
(undergraduate credit), books and supplies, admission to Sea World, and
boat field trip expenses.

Description:  The combined courses provide a thorough and intensive forum
in which students can learn about marine mammals and their conservation
from some of the top marine mammalogists and other scientists in the
country. Specifically, the courses provide the following: a) an
opportunity to observe or to work with a wide variety of marine mammal
species either in the wild or in captivity; b) fundamental principles of
behavioral ecology, evaluation, communication, cognition, functional
morphology and physiology; c) application and illustration of these
principles using various marine mammal species; d) hands-on opportunities
to engage in field and laboratory techniques used in marine mammal
research; e) opportunities to learn about the threats posed by
environmental contaminants; f) the chance to get to know a number of
leading marine mammal scientists and educators; and g) exposure to and
discussion of policy and conservation efforts involving marine mammals.

Evaluation:  Based on exams, laboratory and field reports, and
participation.
