USM offering summer class on Gulf of Mexico

Link - College students, precollege teachers and nature enthusiasts are invited to explore the northern Gulf of Mexico through courses at the University of Southern Mississippi's Gulf Coast Research Laboratory this summer. Registration opens Jan. 3 for the lab's summer field program, which emphasizes hands-on experiences in local coastal and marine environments in addition to time in the laboratory and the classroom. Courses are offered in three sessions, starting in May. The 2005 line-up also includes four mini-courses designed for teachers of kindergarten through 12th grade that last one week and carry two semester hours a credit each. Students may earn more than 12 semester hours in a summer. Credit earned is transferred to students' home institutions. For details, call Dawne Hard at (228) 872-4223 or e-mail (Or visit the link above.)
