Each summer graduate-level courses in American Maritime History are offered at Mystic
Seaport, America’s largest maritime museum. Munson Institute courses are available for
transferable academic credit through the University of Connecticut and Trinity College.
The tall ships, historic buildings, and scenic waterfront of Mystic Seaport will be the campus
for both a survey course and a seminar from 22 June through 30 July 2009. Faculty
members will also lead students on field seminars to Coast Guard Station, New London, the
whaling village of Stonington, CT, and colonial Newport, RI. Students also cruise to Long
Island Sound aboard Sabino, America’s only coal-fired passenger steamboat.
Classes are taught by leading experts from a variety of fields, including gender, race and
ethnicity, diplomacy, the Anglo-Atlantic, navies, ocean sciences, marine archeology, the
environment, and the lakes and rivers. The interaction among institute participants, faculty
and guest speakers continue under informal circumstances during the late afternoon and
