Immerse yourself in the Environmental Science Semester

Whether you are an environmental science, environmental studies or marine science major, you will gain a strong foundation of practical experience from the Environmental Science Semester, during which you’ll study field methods, oceanography, climate change and glacial geology, and marine ecology. Starting fall 2014, the entire semester is off campus, with field-based projects and instruction in coastal Maine, Atlantic Canada and aboard a schooner exploring the islands and waters of the Gulf of Maine. Practical experience will solidify your understanding of complex processes and interactions. This will boost confidence in your scientific field and result in a more marketable background for your future career.
