The Career Series DolphinLab courses combine plenty of hands-on experience with the dolphins, plus intensive academics. Delve more deeply into the fields of behavioral science, animal care and training, and cognition research.

In fact, several of Dolphin Research Center’s current staff are themselves former DolphinLab students! If you simply want a vacation with dolphins, the Career Series courses are not the right fit for your goals, as these courses are quite rigorous and intensive.
