Off-campus study opportunities are available to students. Students who wish to obtain further expertise in environmental science and ecology may attend the AuSable Institute for Environmental Studies in Michigan. Sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, the AuSable Institute offers in-depth classes during January, May and summer.
Internships are encouraged and can provide students with practical experience in their chosen field. Area research facilities are very amenable to these internships.
