Students at Sea: Adjusting to Academics Aboard a Ship

Kelsey Hayes from Texas Technical University spends her morning studying in the library.

School doesn’t stop at sea! Classes onboard the MV Explorer are in full swing for the 50th Anniversary Spring 2014 voyage, where students take classes from a selection of more than 80 courses, including International Management, Asian Politics, African Oral Tradition and Marine Biology. While students work through their rigorous course material, they find that their specialized coursework, well-experienced professors, and the shipboard community as a whole are helping them gain new insights – from both inside and outside the classroom. In this podcast, students talk about their experience with academic life on Semester at Sea and how it’s preparing them for their upcoming travels in port.
