Stanford@SEA is an exciting biological and oceanographic 16-18 unit course offered through the Biology and Oceans Departments. Half the course occurs at Stanford University‚Äôs Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove; the other half aboard the R/V Robert C. Seamans, which the Sea Education Association (SEA) operates in the Pacific Ocean with the support of the National Science Foundation. Stanford@SEA follows the traditional model of the SEA program at Woods Hole, Massachusetts: shore-side classes followed by an intensive open sea component. At Stanford, the shore component is comprised of five weeks of full day classes and labs in three subject areas. Students then spend five weeks aboard the research vessel sailing the Pacific Ocean.
