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’s 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 (8-5) classes and labs in three subject areas. Students then spend five weeks aboard the research vessel sailing the Pacific Ocean.
