Faculty

SEA has an outstanding and involved faculty with a strong commitment to teaching. These scientists, mariners, and scholars have come to SEA to share their enthusiasm for ocean science, ships, and the sea. SEA faculty respect the value of cooperative learning, which gives our programs a personal quality. These men and women have all worked at sea and understand the challenges and rewards of living in and studying the world offshore.

SEA captains and chief scientists lead the teaching crew on board the vessels. All shipboard staff are chosen for their experience, teaching skills and commitment to SEA’s approach to education. Students work closely with them, learning from each and every member of the crew. The SEA faculty is augmented by visiting scholars and lecturers, who on occasion serve as year-long replacements for faculty members on sabbatical.
