Scuba diving can now be checked off the list of exciting programs at NSU, thanks to the new academic diving program. This program offers scuba diving training for academic credit as well as for recreation purpose.
The Introduction to Scuba Diving (MBIO 4900), was added to the course catalog this summer. The course is a three-credit hour elective from Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences. Students become certified divers at the end of the course. There is a $200 lab fee, which covers boat fees, lake dives, books and other materials needed for the class.
The scholarship program, founded in 1946 by U.S. Senator William Fulbright, is a competitive, merit-based grant program which offers teaching and/or research opportunities to college or university faculty, and administrators, as well as artists, journalists, lawyers and independent scholars. The application deadline for the 2013-14 awards of The Fulbright Scholar Program is Aug. 1.
