Study at Friday Harbor Labs this Year
Spend a quarter studying in residence at the UW’s marine field station at Friday Harbor Labs (FHL). Undergraduates can study at FHL in spring, summer or autumn quarters, and the deadline for spring/summer applications is February 1.
● Explore the marine environment of the Salish Sea where your classroom is a marine preserve, and the boats are just steps away from your dorm.
● Courses for all levels from introductory marine biology to advanced research apprenticeships.
● Get to know your teachers with class sizes frequently less than 20 students.
Get all the information you need to know to plan for a quarter or course at Friday Harbor Labs. Meet faculty, TAs, and students from past quarters, and learn about the courses offered this year.
