A representative from the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory will share information on the Woods Hole Semester in Environmental Science. Join us for pizza and find out more from a SES alum!
Some background on the Semester: Plunge into this full-immersion science experience and spend over 20 hours every week working in the field and in the lab facilities at the world renowned Marine Biological Laboratory. The Semester in Environmental Science (SES) is a full semester of course credit taught by a faculty of researchers who are among ecology’s top scientists. Students examine global environmental problems within the context of local ecosystems. Through a set of well-integrated field and laboratory exercises, students compare the structure and function of ecosystems across the estuaries, ponds, freshwater wetlands, salt marshes and forests of Cape Cod. Students learn cutting edge techniques that are crucial to current environmental research. In addition to the coursework, SES offers another very unique opportunity to undergrads: students are given the entire final third of the semester to utilize the resources of the laboratory to complete a project of their own design. The research skills and professional connections that students acquire during their semester in Woods Hole are invaluable- 20% of SES students return to Woods Hole as employees!
