And you’ll discover opportunities that could include studying marine wildlife in the Galapagos, the Atlantic or the Everglades; interning at a Fortune 500 company; or exploring the ancient architecture of Rome.

And our prime location will put you near a thriving center of commerce, as well as natural resources such as the Everglades and one of the great North American coral reefs.
