This fall, Stony Brook University will commence and exciting new academic program for undergraduates on the ocean in Southampton, NY.  Offered by the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences (SoMAS), Semester by the Sea is designed for undergraduate students to spend a fall semester immersed in marine studies while in residence at the Stony Brook Southampton campus.   The program takes full advantage of the Southampton Marine Science Center, its research vessels, its waterfront marine lab facilities, and the unique campus location on the shores of Shinnecock Bay for direct access to estuaries, bays, and the Atlantic Ocean.  Any student may enroll, but the program is best suited for upper level science majors as several of the elective courses have prerequisites.
