This summer travel to the breathtaking island of Bermuda and
discover the issues within environmental decision making! Join us
for an information session for the Bermuda Summer Pre-Session with
Professor Frank Cantelmo.
Bermuda lies approximately 700 miles off the coast of the United
States and a thousand miles north of the Caribbean. The
interconnected 22-square-mile chain of islands surrounded by the
Atlantic Ocean gives Bermuda a unique and breathtaking natural
ecology. Bermuda is a self-governing overseas territory of the
United Kingdom and is home to major insurance and financial
institutions. In addition, it is one of the most beautiful tourist
destinations in the world.
Offered from May 16 to 26 in partnership with the Bermuda
Aquarium, Museum and Zoo (BAMZ) www.bamz.org, this course brings
students to historic and ecologically significant sites in Bermuda
and nearby islands. Founded through the generous support of Joseph
Smetana, a longtime supporter of St. John’s and a member of its
Board of Governors, the program includes lodging, meals,
transportation to and from field trips, boat use and equipment (You
should know how to swim). Mr. Smetana also sits on the board of the
Atlantic Conservation Partnership (ACP) www.atlanticconservationpartnership.com,
which is the support charity that facilitates the summer program at
the BAMZ host site.
Imagine gaining a deeper understanding of human and
environmental ecology, as well as exposure to life in an island
society while pursuing your coursework here at St. John’s!
Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!
