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, in summer 2020, between late April and end of August, we are offering at least 8 virtual, online courses in intensive 2-3 week format. Some original courses have been cancelled, and will either move to Fall 2020, or will occur in SEASIDE summer 2021. 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.
