Promoting Educational Excellence

Semester at Sea equips students with the global understanding necessary to become prepared future leaders and global citizens. Our academic program, offered in academic partnership with Colorado State University, integrates comparative experiential study, interdisciplinary coursework, and relevant field classes in multiple countries.

On June 1, 2016, Colorado State University became the new academic partner for Semester at Sea. The Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 voyages were the final two voyages through which students received University of Virginia course credit. The Fall 2016 voyage will be the first voyage through which students will receive Colorado State University course credit.
