Offered through the Biology Department, SEASIDE courses provide undergraduates with hands-on training in species identification, sampling, conducting research, and other practical skills, while studying different ecosystems and the biology of algae, plants, insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, sharks or marine mammals.

Due to COVID-19 Health and Safety regulations, courses currently scheduled as "in person" are pending approval and subject to change. For summer 2021, we have a mix of virtual (online) and in-person courses offered, including a brand-new course! Our courses provide university credit in Biology (BIOL), Marine Biology (MARI), Oceanography (OCEA) Environmental Science (ENVS), or Geography (GEOG). Some are open to non-majors.
