"The Baja California Field Studies Program regrets to inform you that the Summer 2020 classes in Baja have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 travel restrictions. We hope to begin offering classes again during the Winter and Summer 2021 sessions, so please check our webpage again during the Fall 2020 semester for more updates. 

 We are looking forward to see you join our programs soon."



Watch this beautiful video filmed during one of our Winter classes in Baja.

Glendale Community College (GCC) has been offering field classes in the Baja California peninsula of Mexico since 1974.

Glendale Community College has just completed the construction of a new Field Station (Estación del Mar Cortés) in the town of Bahía de los Angeles within a region of great biodiversity known as the Midriff Islands.

Bahía de los Angeles is famous among scientists, educators and fishermen because of its natural beauty and the incredible diversity of life, which provides great opportunities to learn about the natural environment.

The Gulf of California is one of the most unique environments in the planet and the islands within it have been called the “Galapagos of Mexico"!

Come and join us for one of the best academic experiences you’ll ever have.
