Study Abroad in Roatan, Honduras

One of the world's most impressive and accessible coral reefs is in the western Caribbean, on the island of Roatan, 30 miles off the coast of Honduras.

During the January 2014 winter session, Purchase will again offer the Coral Reef Biology and Ecology program—a hands-on, experiential educational opportunity.
