Barbados Interdisciplinary Tropical Studies (BITS)

The Barbados Interdisciplinary Tropical StudiesBarbados Interdisciplinary Tropical Studies (BITS) program involves students in 15-credits of intensive course and project work during the summer (May - August).

This is a joint program between McGill University and the University of the West Indies (UWI). Students have the option of living on campus (Bellairs Institute or UWI) or off-campus.

This summer program is an activity-filled, hands-on study experience for students with an interest in international studies with a Caribbean flavour. It exposes students to a wide range of agri-food-energy industries and related socio-economic issues in Barbados. Intensive course work is integrated with group project work and contributes to the formation of professionals with planning, managing, decision-making, and communication skills. The program addresses a global need for experienced international professionals capable of interacting with various levels of government, non-governmental organizations, and the private sector.
