Washington College’s Chesapeake Semester

Each fall, a group of students do an interdisciplinary study in the Chesapeake Bay. For four courses, the entire semester is looked at through the aspect of the Chesapeake Bay, either through natural sciences, social sciences, or humanity courses plus a fourth course that integrates all four. The Chesapeake Semester allows students to get an infield experience, giving them an up close and personal connection with the estuary. This course gives the students the opportunity to explore all around the area either through nature, waterways, or animal life. Here is a 40 minute documentary about this amazing and unique course: http://www.washcoll.edu/centers/ces/details/news_centers.php?id=287
