Your Learning Adventure Awaits

Educational travel lies at the heart of the Semester at Sea experience. Utilizing more than 50 years of expertise in the field of international educational travel, SAS provides a host of explorations in the more than 40 destinations we visit each year. Field programs, drawing on our shipboard curriculum, include UNESCO World Heritage Sites, service learning visits, home stays, national park excursions, architectural walking tours, eco hikes, and on-the-ground investigations that are hard to replicate on other programs.

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.
