Founded in 1963, Semester at Sea (SaS) is a study-abroad program that takes place on a cruise ship. The current academic sponsor is Colorado State University. Nearly 73,000 undergraduate students from over 1,500 colleges and universities have participated in Semester at Sea. During the semester the ship circumnavigates the globe, docking at 10 or 11 ports from North America east (across the Atlantic) or west (across the Pacific) and visiting 10 to 11 countries in Asia, Africa, Europe, South America, and North America.
Our founder Evelyn Hannon wrote about her Semester at Sea experience as life-changing. Learn more from Marillee on our JW Advisory Council. Marillee also hosts our West Coast Community Call.
