Cooperative Education (co-op) is a distinctive form of experiential education in which students alternate periods of academic study with 6 month periods of work experience in their field(s) of interest. Learn more about co-op opportunities in Marine and Environmental Sciences.
Students who wish to move beyond the confines of the traditional classroom will spend an exciting year of field and laboratory studies at three very different locations, the Northeast coast and the Northwest coast in the United States, as well as Panama’s Caribbean coast in Central America. The Three Seas Program is ideal for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students eager to broaden their knowledge of marine science. Our program has a strong research focus, with a diverse and high-caliber faculty who direct active research programs.
