Boston University Explorations in Learning
The Explorations in Learning program transforms the classroom learning experience by moving it to an environment that fosters adventure and exploration. Courses aboard the Schooner Ernestina through BU's Metropolitan College provide rare summertime opportunities that mix adventure with education. Sailing along the New England Seacoast, students will explore maritime history or literature while capturing the essence of life as a tall ship sailor.

MET HI 235 X2/MET HI 702 X2 Summer 2 - Maritime History of New England
This intensive course will broadly survey the maritime history of New England -- human seaborne enterprise and the development of sea power along the North Atlantic seaboard. Classes will alternate between historical lectures (meant to set the course readings into context) and discussions of some important classics of New England maritime literature. Focusing primarily on the role of "wooden ships and iron men" during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, we will consider the various historical catalysts for the development of New England's unique maritime economy and culture. Themes will include early colonization, shipbuilding, fishing and whaling, privateering, piracy, and New England's development of global trading networks. Students will benefit from stops at some of New England's best maritime museums. The class will explore maritime history not only through the traditional means of specialized readings and lectures, but also through hands-on training aboard a traditionally-rigged wooden schooner. Students will learn by direct experience the arts of a tall-ship sailor and the historical interrelationship between humans and the sea. 4 Credits (Walker)
