A summer Semester with the Sea Education Association (SEA) is unlike any other study abroad program. It combines an intensive four-week shore component in Woods Hole, MA with a sea voyage either in the Atlantic/Caribbean or in the Pacific. (Depending on the time of year, some voyages may go to Nova Scotia). The interdisciplinary course work teaches more than just Maritime Studies, Nautical Science, and Oceanography; it teaches students about team work, cooperation, and seamanship. Students also learn how to sail a boat, from striking and setting sails to navigating and steering.
Note: This program fulfills most Arts & Sciences requirements for the Marine Studies minor. Please consult Peter Rosen in the Geology Department for more information.
