Shoals Semester Program

Combine at least four SML credit courses in one summer and earn the same credits as a regular academic semester. SML's diverse course offerings (listed above) give you the flexibility to design a Shoals Semester to meet your individual interests or focus on requirements in your major.

Shoals Research Apprenticeship

Combine Investigative Marine Biology Laboratory (BIOSM 1500 / MEFB 403) with Research in Biology (BIOSM 4990 / MEFB 751) for a 4-week Shoals Research Apprenticeship. Learn the ins-and-outs of experimental design and execute your own individual research project for credit.
