    Each semester is 17 weeks.  Fall semesters are  late August to mid-December; Spring semesters are  late January to mid-May.  In both the fall and spring semesters, we travel together on three interdisciplinary field seminars: the offshore voyage, the Pacific Coast Field Seminar, and the Gulf Coast Field Seminar.

    *Dates are subject to change.  Students will receive a more comprehensive schedule once the semester begins, which will include day trips, special classes, and events.
