SEA Semester

http://www.sea.edu

SEA Semester is a program provider offering 9 abroad programs. Programs offered include Study Abroad and Research abroad programs in 14 countries such as Spain, New Zealand, Grenada, and Multi-Region.

SEA Semester is the leading off-campus environmental studies program focused on the ocean. Since 1971, we've educated more that 8,500 undergraduates on shore in Woods Hole and aboard out sailing research vessels at sea.

We develop ocean scholars, stewards and leaders: people who are passionate about making a difference. We're dedicated to empowering students with life-changing sea voyages of scientific and cultural discovery, academic rigor, and personal growth.

Our interdisciplinary semester and summer programs combine elements of oceanography, maritime history & culture, environmental studies, public policy, and resource management to allow students to approach study of the oceans from a variety of perspectives.

Each semester long SEA Semester program begins with academic coursework on SEA's campus in Woods Hole, Massachusetts and continues with an open ocean voyage aboard one of our sailing research vessels. Our summer programs vary from five to eight weeks in length with shore components in Woods Hole or abroad. While at sea, all students engage in independent research while participating as active members of the ship's crew.
