The World is your classroom!

Semester at Sea offers global comparative education in academic partnership with Colorado State University, integrating comparative experimental study, interdisciplinary coursework, and relevant field classes in multiple countries. Semester at Sea has served as a pioneer in multiple-country, comparative education for more than 50 years. Global comparative education is a form of international study that identifies and connects the world’s peoples, patterns, cultures and traditions. Throughout the semester, disciplines and thematic issues are viewed cross-culturally and from a global perspective.

Instead of travelling to a school in another country, you travel to an embarkation port, where you will then board a ship. From there you attend classes on the ship while making your way across the globe, where you can study in-depth and in-person with different countries and cultures, all while studying regular coursework that relates to the different ports!
