Program Overview

Program Description:
Since 1971 students have engaged the world's ocean through an interdisciplinary curriculum of sciences, social sciences, humanities and public policy through SEA. Lessons extend beyond the classroom to the deck and lab of a 134' sailing oceanographic research vessel. Here students not only learn about the most powerful natural entity in the world, the ocean, but also explore the depths of themselves.

Science at SEA (SAS) is a 20-day program for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors offered by Sea Education Association and focusing on the coastal and offshore marine environment around Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The program includes a Shore Component on the SEA campus in Woods Hole, MA, and a Sea Component aboard one of SEA's sailing research vessels, the SSV Corwith Cramer.

SEA provides students with access to a level of ocean exploration unavailable anywhere else in the world. We balance on-shore research and team building with real oceanographic research aboard a traditional sailing vessel. Most importantly, teamwork, leadership, and sense of community are the underlying values of SEA's academic curriculum. Participants will not only grow as students, but as global citizens and individuals.
Setting Description:
During the Shore Component in Woods Hole, students study the marine environment from a variety of perspectives: scientific, historical, literary, and nautical. During the Sea Component, students sail around Cape Cod & into the Gulf of Maine while studying offshore oceanography, nautical science, and acting as members of the ship's crew.
