Snorkeling, reef-mapping, exploring pristine coves — this summer
St. John’s once again offers students a chance to combine studying
abroad with the environmental sciences through
Discover Bermuda: Adaptive Ecosystem Management, Sustainability and
Socioeconomic Issues, one of the many Global Studies courses
that St. John’s offers throughout the year.

This popular two-week course is open to all majors, but
interested students should
apply now since enrollment is limited to 20 students.
Frank Cantelmo, Ph.D. , Associate Professor of Biological
Sciences and Environmental Studies, will teach the course for the
second year. Dr. Cantelmo is an expert on sustainability and serves
as an advisor to Archbishop Celestino Migliore, Permanent Observer
of the Holy See to the United Nations.
Offered from May 16 to 29 in partnership with the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo
(BAMZ), the 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).
