Courses can be found by quarter or by keyword search. Please note that many spring and autumn courses are offered only as a part of either the Zoo-Bot Program or Spring/Autumn Marine Sciences.
Students are encouraged to check with an advisor at their home institution to confirm that University of Washington credits earned through coursework at FHL are transferable.
To receive a transcript for a course completed at FHL, follow instructions provided at the this UW website. Please note that your transcript from UW may list a course title that does not exactly match the title of the course you complete at FHL. The course title on the transcript will list the UW “umbrella” course title under which the FHL course is offered.
This one-weekend, one-credit course is targeted to University of Washington freshmen or sophomores studying marine biology, biology or environmental science who want to learn more about marine habitats.
Spring Marine Studies choice: This course will help students read peer-reviewed and public science writing, and understand and analyze those genres with respect to message, structure and target audience.
Spring Marine Studies choice: This course will provide students new to the biological sciences an opportunity to learn about the wide variety of marine mammals found here and the ecosystems that support them.
These three courses comprise the Zoo-Bot Program and must be taken together. They are designed to complement each other, giving students an overview of marine life of the region as well as experience in marine sciences research.
Marine Biology Quarter Choice: This course provides students with a hands-on introduction of “doing science”. The bulk of the course will be spent engaged in research activities in close collaboration with a supervisor.
This is an Upper-Division course (400-level) appropriate for upper-level undergraduates or graduate students. Prior coursework in invertebrate biology or animal diversity will be useful; if in doubt, please contact one of the instructors.
