Student Participation

While many of our students are in the EST timezone, students have participated from around the globe. Undergraduate and graduate students in our courses are often Animal Science, Fisheries & Aquatic Sciences, Marine Biology, Wildlife Ecology & Conservation, or Zoology majors. Many of the undergraduate students are on a pre-veterinary medicine track. We also offer this course to veterinary medicine students and as continuing education for veterinarian CE credit. Others interested in furthering their education may also benefit from the CE enrollment option such as aquarists, biologists, and veterinary technicians.
