The MBL’s Semester in Environmental Science (SES) is no ordinary study abroad program. The 15-week program provides an intensive field and laboratory-based introduction to ecosystems science and the biogeochemistry of coastal forests, freshwater ponds, and estuaries.
Scientists at the MBL Ecosystems Center and at the MBL Josephine Bay Paul Center serve as faculty for the program. In addition to teaching fundamentals of ecosystems science, they discuss their current research, which touches on important issues of global and environmental change.
In these video testimonials, the SES Faculty talk about their science, the MBL, and what makes SES such a unique program.
