SURF: Summer Undergraduate Research Focus

The SURF program did not receive funding for Summer 2015.  We will continue to pursue funding for Summer 2016, so please check back in December 2015 or January 2016.

Expand your horizons by participating in field and/or laboratory research in coastal environments on the Texas Gulf of Mexico coast!
June 3 - July 31, 2014!

The major objective of the 9-week annual Summer Undergraduate Research Focus - Climate Change, Global Warming, and the Health of Texas Bays and Estuaries - is to provide research experiences and training for undergraduate students.

The common focus of the research activities is investigation of the effects of human activities on the environment, particularly the coastal environment. Research experiences will take place in the labs of College of Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi faculty members.

The goals of the program are to improve the critical thinking ability and communication skills of the students, to provide hands-on research and field experiences, and to foster life-long science learning.
