The Organization for Tropical Studies (OTS) and Duke University proudly offer semester and summer programs in field biology and global health for undergraduates. All OTS courses are structured on field-based, experiential learning under the close guidance of highly qualified academic professors and visit a diversity of tropical habitats and communities. In any OTS program, students will meet active researchers and local stakeholders and will develop the skills needed for advanced studies and careers in tropical biology, resource management, or global health.
We are hoping to hear from you and would love to answer your questions or send more information.

DO YOU TEACH * MENTOR * WORK WITH UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS?
If so, the OTS Enrollment Management Team would welcome your assistance with recruiting qualified undergraduate students to our dynamic summer/semester courses and REU experiences in Costa Rica and South Africa. We have developed a very short PowerPoint (8 annotated slides) for faculty members to download and show to students in classrooms, clubs, lab, etc. Based on our collected data, a faculty/staff recommendation is the No. 1 source of influence on why a student decides to participate in an OTS program. By taking this extra step, you could change a student's life. Should you have any questions or need assistance in obtaining the PowerPoint, please feel free to contact
as we would be happy to help.
