Biology Field Courses

The Department of Biology offers a suite of local and international field courses designed to provide students with unique opportunities to gain hands-on experience in different field sites. Currently, our field courses are offered at Memorial's Harlow Campus in the United Kingdom, and the Bonne Bay Marine Station on the west coast of Newfoundland.


Memorial's Harlow Campus is used by both professional schools and academic departments to offer individual courses and complete programs. The campus is also utilized by faculty members and graduate students conducting research or further study in the UK.

Harlow Campus Building


The Department of Biology offers two (2) undergraduate courses at Harlow every other Spring semester, based on levels of interest.

The courses offered are BIOL 4910 (Vertebrate Diversity and Adaptation) and BIOL 4911 (Applied Biology).

A Non-Majors Course BIOL 3820 (Foundations of Biology), when offered, takes place over the entire month of May.


For additional information regarding upcoming Harlow course offerings, please contact Harlow Coordinators Dr. Paul Marino (pmarino@mun.ca) or Dr. Sally Goddard (sgoddard@mun.ca).



The Bonne Bay Marine Station is located on the west coast of the island in the quaint, coastal community of Norris Point. Surrounded by Gros Morne National Park, the Bonne Bay area exhibits unparalleled diversity of habitat, marine plants, fish and invertebrates that can't be matched anywhere else in northeastern North America.
