LALW339 Lyric Arts of the Sea 3cr.


Lyric Arts of the Sea is a travel course about the art and literature of the sea, which includes
class meetings during the Spring semester and one week  sailing on board SSV Oliver
Hazard Perry. After exploring some great lyric literature and visual art inspired by the
sublimity and power of the sea, students will have the chance to encounter the ocean (and
the awe it can generate) first hand. Learning to navigate, standing watch, practicing knots,
participating in sail handling, and other sea skills will be complemented by your own
creative work during your week aboard a twenty-sailed tall ship. The ship will sail from
Boston Harbor to Newport, RI. While there will be port stops along the way, this trip is primarily
about the experience of being at sea. No previous experience aboard a ship is necessary, but a
sense of adventure is mandatory!

Prerequisites: LALW-200

Students musy apply for travel courses thorugh the office of international education.
