Our 12-week spring SEA Semester: Ocean Exploration program offers 17 credits & is open to students from all majors. Students first spend 6 weeks at our shore campus in the world-renowned scientific community of Woods Hole, Massachusetts, taking classes and preparing for their voyage. They then spend the next 6 weeks aboard the SSV Corwith Cramer, our 134' oceanographic research sailing vessel, traveling from Key West back to Woods Hole. For further information, please visit
