The University of Washington runs a marine lab in the San Juan Islands called Friday Harbor Labs. Throughout the year there are courses and research apprenticeships for students both at the UW and from non-UW institutions. It’s an amazing facility where students learn so much! Most of the course content is marine biology oriented and many of their classes are able to count for degree programs at the UW in biology, oceanography, aquatic and fishery sciences, the marine biology minor, and more!
The 2011 courses and apprenticeships are now online and the priority deadline for spring quarter is Jan 10th for non-UW students, Jan 31st for UW students.
Summer deadline is Feb. 1st for all students.
