Who We Are

SEA Semester at Woods Hole

Creating Ocean Scholars, Stewards & Leaders Since 1971

Sea Education Association (SEA) is an internationally recognized leader in undergraduate ocean education. For nearly 45 years and over one million nautical miles sailed, we have educated students about the world’s oceans through our fully accredited study abroad program, SEA Semester®.

SEA Semester is the leading off-campus Environmental Studies program focused on the oceans. We create environmentally literate leaders who are prepared to address the defining issue of the twenty-first century: the human impact on the environment. We look for motivated students of all majors who are passionate about learning, willing to seek out new challenges, and eager to become part of a unique learning community.

SEA is based on Cape Cod in the oceanographic research community of Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
