Semester at Sea
Northeastern is a participating university with the Sea Education
Association, which offers the SEA SEMESTER
program out of Woods Hole. This program includes course work both at
the Woods Hole and on one of the tall ships operated by the program.
Destinations of cruises range from Labrador to the Caribbean in the
Atlantic, and Hawaii to Tahiti in the Pacific. This program earns 17
semester-hours for course work, and nearly completes the entire Minor
program while providing blue water experience. The SEA Semester
courses receive credit directly from Northeastern, and the College offers
a waiver of some Core Curriculum requirements as an added benefit for
participation. An informative video
is available from the Marine Studies Office. Program logistics are administered by the Northeastern Study Abroad Office.

Welcome to the Marine Studies Minor Homepage
There is a large range of courses and programs
available to students interested in marine environmental studies at
The Marine Studies Minor Program is designed to suit students from
a range of academic backgrounds. The Minor program is loosely structured
to allow personalizing courses, at least one marine studies course,
mastery of a marine-related skill (most people take SCUBA), and an independent
project associated with the oceans.
See Requirements here.
Minors are also available in the Department of Earth and Environmental Science in Environmental Science, which allows a concentration in earth surface processes (pollution, environmental planning,
etc.), or Environmental Studies, which crosses sciences and social
sciences that may complement your Major concentration or interests.
There are frequent opportunities for field trips, many to coastal sites,
through this program. We try to keep the Marine Studies Minors updated
on these as they are scheduled.
Northeastern University is a member of the Massachusetts Bay Marine
Studies Consortium. The Consortium offers several exciting limited-enrollment
courses made up of students from 18 local colleges. For more information click here.

courses, or any of these other programs, please contact Dr. Peter Rosen
