About SEA

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. Since 1971, we have equipped students with the tools to become environmentally literate leaders prepared to address the defining issue of the twenty-first century: the human impact on the environment.

Our fully accredited study abroad program, SEA Semester®, is the leading off-campus Environmental Studies program focused on the ocean. While the academic focus varies, each program offers an interconnected suite of courses designed to explore a specific ocean-related theme using a cross-disciplinary approach. We look for motivated undergraduates of all majors who are passionate about learning, inspired to tackle and address real-world problems, and eager to become part of an unparalleled living and learning community.

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