Immerse yourself in an experiential learning odyssey on shore in Cape Cod and at sea aboard a sailing research vessel. Develop lifelong leadership and teamwork skills while completing an epic ocean passage from the temperate shores of New England to the tropical islands of the Caribbean.
We’re now accepting applications for gap year and winter start students for Fall 2019.
Atlantic Odyssey offers gap students a blue water sailing voyage, and the opportunity to develop new skills in leadership, teamwork, and research.
Uniquely tailored to Gap Year Students, Atlantic Odyssey is the only SEA Semester program specifically tailored to gap year/winter start who are students looking for an experiential, non-credit bearing learning opportunity. This program explores the conservation and sustainable management of marine environments, and introduces students to the coastal and island communities that depend upon these natural resources.
Students will join an active learning community where they'll develop leadership and teamwork skills while gaining a deeper understanding of what conducting science at sea is all about! They'll explore three climate zones and study numerous ecosystems while participating in cutting-edge research, contributing to active citizen science efforts, and lending a hand in multiple service learning projects.
