Overview

From this island paradise in the Mediterranean, you’ll explore the biodiversity of the Mediterranea sea and coast.

There are few better places in the world to study marine life. Teeming with biodiversity, the Mediterranean Sea supports more than 15,000 different species, several of them unique to this area. On the beautiful island of Mallorca you’ll study this valuable ecosystem up close, combining biology and environmental studies in your multidisciplinary work. Snorkeling in marine protected areas, you’ll discover which key species are under threat from marine pollution and human activity – and how to make a difference. Your days will consist of field work out at sea and in coastal areas, combined with in class discussions, group work and case studies. On dry land, you’ll have time to explore the spirited island culture, enjoy Mediterranean cuisine or the daily island catch, discover modern art or ancient architectural sites, and chill or play sports on the white-sand beaches. For two weeks your home base will be Palma, a coastal city frequently listed among the world’s most livable cities. It’s easy to get swept up in the island lifestyle, with locals and visitors alike making the most of the great outdoors: running, hiking, cycling or mountain biking; kayaking, sailing, surfing or stand-up paddle boarding. For your last week, you’ll stay in a camp with other young students from Mallorca at the Albergue La Victoria summer camp, and you will travel for two full days to the island of Menorca, Biosphere Reserve.
