Sea Olympics

Living, Learning, Exploring

Semester at Sea cultivates an engaging and diverse living learning community of undergraduates, faculty and staff, interport lecturers, international students, and lifelong learners — all of whom live and learn on a passenger ship outfitted as a globe-traveling university.

Spring 2012 Academic Dean, Victor Luftig

Semester at Sea is not 'study abroad': it is global comparative study, bringing together students and faculty from a wide range of schools to learn and to explore in an astonishing array of sites. Semester at Sea is--and indeed must be--the best way to learn to connect, to compare, and to study the links and gaps between the world's most exciting places.
