Marine Studies Consortium

Stonehill is a member of the Marine Studies Consortium, which was organized in 1977 by representatives of twenty-five Massachusetts universities and colleges. Its primary purpose is to promote marine education.

Each year the consortium offers several marine-related courses in Boston which attract undergraduate students from schools throughout the area. Credit for courses taken is granted by the student’s home institution, and the grade received becomes part of the student’s permanent record at the school.

Students interested in enrolling in any of these marine education courses must apply through Professor Maura Tyrrell, Department of Biology.
