Ocean Exploration Trip, Fall 2019

  • Students will enroll in a total of 17 semester hours.
  • Students must earn a B- or better in each course to earn a total of 4 units of Hamilton credit.

As a reminder, Hamilton does have a few requirements students must complete in order to graduate.

  • Quantitative & Symbolic Reasoning (QSR) – A QSR designated course is a Hamilton graduation requirement. Oceanographic Field Methods will fulfill this requirement. 
  • Writing-Intensive – The writing-intensive graduation requirement consists of 3 writing-intensive courses, each taken in a different semester. One needs to be outside of the student’s concentration. No SEA Semester courses count towards the writing-intensive requirement. Students must complete the requirement by graduation, though it is best to complete it as soon as possible. Jans should register for a writing-intensive course for the spring semester of their freshman year or the fall semester of their sophomore year
  • Physical Education – All enrolled students are required to participate in a physical education program for individual development.  This is a five-part graduation requirement that includes, a physical fitness test (a course is offered for those who do not pass); a swim test (beginning swimming is offered for those who do not pass); two lifetime activity classes; and one unit of the following: intercollegiate varsity athletics, wellness seminar, or lifetime activity class. No SEA Semester courses count towards the PE requirement. Upon return to Hamilton, Jans will have until fall break of their junior year to complete the PE requirement.
