Semester at Sea—Study Abroad

Semester at Sea

This program is offered through the Semester at Sea. Semester at Sea provides a unique opportunity to create new perspectives and to tap into every individual's passion for learning and understanding. From the moment the ropes release the MV Explorer, the state-of-the-art floating campus, participants feel an unparalleled exhilaration about the opportunity that lies ahead. The immediate sense of detachment from land that is unique to being on Semester at Sea immediately sets the stage for a once-in-a-lifetime learning opportunity--an opportunity that occurs in the comfortable containment of a floating university where the lives of faculty, staff, students, and lifelong learners intertwine to form an academical community.
