Experiential Opportunities

Clubs and Organizations 

Dive Club

Works to keep certified divers active, assist in new diver certification, and to have some environmental outreach to preserve the water and ecosystem quality of the oceans.

Green Team

Focuses on encouraging students to live “greener” lives, while actively pursuing a more sustainable and eco-friendly atmosphere on our college and surrounding community.

Faculty Mentored Programs 

Students will have the opportunity to participate in research through class, our senior Capstone, and through Independent Studies working with science faculty (check out faculty profiles). Through their participation in research, students will develop practical, applicable skills and problem-solving techniques. In their coursework and research, students will also practice communicating science across disciplines and to a variety of audiences, an essential skill in an era when communicating environmental science issues to the general public is of utmost importance. The Capstone class culminates in a research symposium which simulates a conference at which students will share their research projects. These symposia are open to the public and our community partners.

The pictures below show our current and former students working on various research projects in and around Flagler College.

Study Abroad Trips 

Each summer many of our natural science faculty take groups of students on faculty-led study abroad programs. To see if one is being offered this summer visit
