Exploring Science in Bermuda

Bermuda study abroad trip

HCC has decided to cancel its 2020 summer break study abroad trip to Bermuda. The college will directly contact those students, faculty, and staff registered for the trip regarding pertinent details. More information.

Program Description

Come to Bermuda and learn about this unique island and its rich geological history. Although this island is only 20.6 total square miles, it encompasses a diverse range of organisms that you will not only study, but also have the opportunity to interact with.

You will travel to beaches, dune deposits, and to numerous reef systems in order to draw comparisons between the diversity of organisms and the health of the environment. Students will reside in the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences (BIOS) and utilize the lab equipment to examine sediment and rock samples in an acclaimed laboratory.

Selection Criteria

Please note that to participate in this program, you must be a solid swimmer and be able to hike on rocky and uneven terrains. A significant portion of the Bermuda program is spent on the ocean or outdoors; therefore, you must be able to pass a swim test and one-mile hike at HCC.

Students must attend the mandatory orientation meeting prior to departure.

Giving makes a difference! Your support helps students along their pathways to success.
