Sea Education Association Information Session

Tues October 4
12:10 PM
CNS 112
Pizza and drinks
- RSVP to Carol Hansen ( so she knows how much food to order!

Learn about programs in field and environmental studies aboard the Cory Cramer or the Robert Seamans, sailing out of Woods Hole, which is not only a world-famous center for ocean and scientific exploration, but also a very cool (and beautiful!) place.

From the website...
By coming to SEA, you can get a semester’s worth of credit for a 12-week program that takes place half on shore and half at sea. Our rigorous interdisciplinary programs begin in Woods Hole, one of the world’s great centers for ocean research. Here you will study the chemistry, biology, physics, and geology of the oceans and you will design your own research project that you will carry out at sea. You will learn the history and culture of mariners who for centuries have gone to sea, an ancient tradition that you will join. You will discuss the major policy issues that will be tomorrow’s headlines. And you will learn what it requires to take a vessel under sail safely to the open ocean and to international ports.
