Our Floating Academical Village

Thomas Jefferson’s ideal educational setting was summed up by his use of the phrase “Academical Village”. He saw value in professors and students living and working in close proximity to each other because he knew that learning could extend well beyond the classroom to spontaneous conversations and daily interaction. This is exactly what the shipboard experience of Semester at Sea offers. It is a vibrant and ever-evolving community of students, faculty, staff and lifelong learners who all bring their unique backgrounds to the table and learn from each other.
