The following section includes courses of interest to students in various disciplines and courses offered within the Marine Studies Consortium.


Marine Studies Consortium Courses

The Marine Studies Consortium offers courses focusing on a variety of aquatic topics. These courses are taught at neighboring institutions and are open to a limited number of Wellesley students by permission of the consortium representative, Marianne Moore, Department of Biological Sciences. 

The courses offered are EXTD 123, EXTD 128, EXTD 225, and EXTD 226.


Students interested in engineering should consider EXTD 120 Making a Difference Through Engineering and ENGR 160/EXTD 160 Fundamentals of Engineering. First-year students may enroll in EXTD 111 Product Creation for All, and students who have taken EXTD 120 are eligible for EXTD 125, an associated Wintersession course. Students may also consider possible subsequent engineering studies such as the engineering certificates from the Olin College of Engineering. Additional information about taking courses at Olin can be found online at crossreg.olin.edu. Students also have opportunities to take courses at MIT via the Wellesley-MIT exchange program. Class Dean Jennifer Stephan and Amy Banzaert, visiting lecturer in engineering, advise Wellesley students interested in engineering.
