Studying The Sea In The Bahamas

Some Things You Can't Learn in a Classroom

For students as active and engaged as those who choose to study at Wittenberg University, it is only natural that the summer months offer opportunities to extend their educational pursuits. Once again in 2016, numerous faculty members and students alike have chosen to continue their teaching and research in locations across the globe.

One of the most popular annual educational opportunities is the Wittenberg Bahamas Field Study, which exposes students interested in studying marine science to an invaluable hands-on experience. In 2016, a total of 18 students and three professors are studying, working, and occasionally, playing in San Salvador, The Bahamas.

Their studies and work take the students and faculty members to beaches and ocean reefs, thanks to a partnership with the Gerace Research Center. Click the link below to read first-hand accounts of the experience as written on the Wittenberg Bahamas Field Study blog.

About Wittenberg

Wittenberg's curriculum has centered on the liberal arts as an education that develops the individual's capacity to think, read, and communicate with precision, understanding, and imagination. We are dedicated to active, engaged learning in the core disciplines of the arts and sciences and in pre-professional education grounded in the liberal arts. Known for the quality of our faculty and their teaching, Wittenberg has more Ohio Professors of the Year than any four-year institution in the state. The university has also been recognized nationally for excellence in community service, sustainability, and intercollegiate athletics. Located among the beautiful rolling hills and hollows of Springfield, Ohio, Wittenberg offers more than 100 majors, minors and special programs, enviable student-faculty research opportunities, a unique student success center, service and study options close to home and abroad, a stellar athletics tradition, and successful career preparation.
