Semester at WHOI
Join us for Fall 2017! Conduct research in state-of-the-art facilities and learn about the ocean from leaders in ocean science and engineering.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) is offering a semester-long, tuition-supported program for advanced undergraduates (juniors or seniors) majoring in science, engineering, or mathematics that features a significant research experience. The Semester At WHOI (SAW) program is particularly well-suited for students who are planning to obtain an advanced degree in ocean sciences, ocean engineering, or related fields in the geosciences.
The semester features a for-credit research project overseen by a WHOI scientist or engineer. See the WHOI Areas of Research for potential projects and advisors.
Students will also have the opportunity to take one or two ocean science courses designed specifically for this program and/or choose from a small number of graduate courses that are also offered for undergraduate credit. The combination of the research project and course work will provide a full semester of credit transferable back to the student's home institution.
