New Undergrad Semester at Coast

The Center for Marine Sciences and Technology is opening its doors this Spring to 25 undergraduate students for NC State University’s first-ever Semester at CMAST. Inspired by the success of summer sessions and fellowships, CMAST Director, Dr. David Eggleston and Dr. William Winner from the Department of Forestry & Environmental Resources have created a program that will let NCSU undergraduates take fuller advantage of the resources that CMAST has to offer.  EMC faculty will be heavily involved in the teaching of the new semester at CMAST.

Undergraduates of all majors who are drawn to marine and environmental science will be able to explore those interests in an immersive, experiential learning space in the heart of the “coastal research triangle,”  in Carteret County.  They will at the same time be completing a full 15 credit academic semester applied towards their NC State degree.  Interested undergraduates are encouraged to apply now, as the October 30th deadline is fast-approaching!   For more information about the Semester at CMAST, read the article in The Technician or visit the program’s page on the CMAST website.
