Course Offerings  

SEA Semester students study the ocean from the perspectives of science, history, literature, and policy. Foundations are built at the SEA campus in the world-renowned oceanographic community of Woods Hole, Mass. First-hand, interdisciplinary knowledge about the ocean, as well as practical seamanship skills, are gathered aboard one of SEA’s two 134-foot sailing research vessels in either the Atlantic Ocean/Caribbean Sea or Pacific Ocean. Courses are directly transferable and listed in Courses of Study under SEA. Six unique SEA Semester programs (12-week, 17-18 credit) are offered— focusing on a number of topics including island history and culture, climate change, and biodiversity. Shorter (4- and 8-week) programs are offered during the summer. Students of all majors are welcome and no prior sailing experience is necessary.

For more information, contact Sea Education Association, P.O. Box 6, Woods Hole, MA 02543, (800) 552-3633 x 770, admissions@sea.edu, or visit www.sea.edu. CALS students should file an intent to study off campus form with the college registrar as early as possible to ensure proper registration and enrollment in courses. Program costs are to be paid in place of regular Cornell tuition and fees.

Instructors for SEA Semester include faculty of the Sea Education Association and visiting faculty from a number of colleges and universities.
