FAU's Jupiter campus to offer summer science experience
Florida Atlantic University continues to expand its Life Science Initiative on the John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter with the announcement of the Jupiter Summer Science Experience. The summer program is an opportunity for students to enhance their education in the life sciences and other academic disciplines, and a number of research-based experiences, including internships, will be available.
The Jupiter Summer Science Experience offers students from FAU as well as other colleges a chance to become part of the MacArthur Campus' innovative Life Science Initiative. Research collaborations have recently been launched between faculty at FAU and researchers at the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience and the Scripps Florida Research Institute.
"This is a unique educational experience that promises to be a very exciting opportunity for students," says Dean Jeffrey Buller of the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College. "This is a great time for people to learn more about FAU's MacArthur campus. Along with the university's science initiative, we have courses this summer for students with a wide range of interests."
Areas of study offered include:
- Directed Independent Study
- Cellular Biology
In addition to enrolling in courses, students will have the option of participating in other activities to extend their knowledge, participate in career-enhancing opportunities and enjoy the many resources the area has to offer. There will also be an opportunity to live in the dormitories on the MacArthur campus at a discounted rate. This program is open to FAU students and non-FAU students.
