Fieldwork and Events

​​​​​​​​​​​​​

For the first time in AUB, students minoring in the Marine Sciences and Culture program became licensed divers through the field school conducted in northern Lebanon. The program, funded by the Honor Frost Foundation, gave them the opportunity to practice non-invasive survey techniques at underwater sites to better understand maritime cultural landscapes in Lebanon.
