The Semester in Environmental Science (SES) is offered each fall by The Ecosystems Center, Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), located in Woods Hole on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. SES is a 15-week program in environmental science offered to Hendrix students and others enrolled in colleges participating in the MBL Consortium in Environmental Science. The MBL is the oldest private marine laboratory in North America, and has served as a home to researchers and students studying both basic biology and the environment for over 110 years. The SES program, which began in 1997, is dedicated to providing undergraduates with an opportunity to learn about ecosystems and conduct environmental research with some of the top scientists in the field.
