Summer 2020 promises to be another busy and exciting year at CMUBS.  We will continue to offer a few of our typical 3 week, 3 credit courses in addition to a series of field based specialty courses that take advantage of our faculty expertise, first rate research facility and our unique location  on beautiful Beaver Island.  These specialty courses will  appeal to a more diverse group from undergraduate and graduate students at CMU and across the region  to working professionals and individuals  wishing to expand their knowledge on a wide range of topics.  Please click on the request information box above to see the course listing and inquire about specific opportunities.  There is something for everyone this summer at CMUBS!
