SEA Semester

United States -

Tags: Biology Environmental Studies Geology Global Studies

The SEA program is designed to develop in students a talent for the application of scientific thinking and method to the marine environment. This program gives undergraduates the opportunity to study the ocean from a variety of academic perspectives and to do it from the platform of a traditional sailing vessel. It is open to students in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences. This is a unique opportunity for Lawrence students, scientists and non-scientists alike, to learn about maritime heritage (in art, literature, philosophy, and politics) and to develop the observational and investigative skills that grow from sustained attention to complex physical data. The 12-week program is divided into the Shore Component (the first six weeks) and the Sea Component (the remaining six weeks). No sailing experience is necessary.

Some tracks of the program require past science coursework but many tracks do not -- students should check for prerequisites for their track of interest
