Video and Photos


From this island paradise in the Mediterranean, you’ll do research, conservation and field work on the coast and at sea.
There are few better places in the world to study marine life. Teeming with biodiversity, the Mediterranean Sea supports more than 15,000 different species, several of them unique to this area. On the beautiful island of Mallorca you’ll study this valuable ecosystem up close, combining ecology, biology and environmental studies in your multidisciplinary work.

Snorkeling in marine protected areas, you’ll discover which key species are under threat from marine pollution and human activity – and how to make a difference. Your days will consist of field work out at sea and in coastal areas, combined with lectures and hands-on conservation work. On dry land, you’ll have time to explore the spirited island culture, enjoy Mediterranean cuisine or the daily island catch, discover modern art or ancient architectural sites, and chill or play sports on the white-sand beaches.

The Best Experience I've Ever Had

This entire program was full of fun and informative learning! You get to explore a new region in the world as well as learn about specific topics in marine science, and completing work outside on research and projects in the classroom. I gained a lot from this program, in social skills, academic knowledge, and appreciation for our natural planet. I truly believe that you will not find any experience quite like studying abroad, especially with CIEE. Their staff are all really nice, and extremely helpful and responsive. They're also fun-loving! Please consider studying abroad with CIEE, they are one of the best companies for traveling and exploring the world! CIEE would ensure that your study abroad experience is the best it can be, and they work hard to bring unique opportunities to high school and college students!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Always, always, ALWAYS be open to new people. Making great friends is one of the best feelings while studying abroad, learning among people that you can relate with makes the experience so much better!
