SAS: Semester At Sea

Program Administrator: 
Semester at Sea
Country: 
Multiple Countries
Host Institution: 

Semester at Sea is a pioneer and leader in global, comparative education—a form of international study that focuses on surveying the world's peoples, patterns, cultures, and traditions. Global, comparative education is the element that distinguishes Semester at Sea from other study abroad programs. Operating a traveling shipboard campus allows diverse learning communities to live and learn in close quarters as they travel the world, and SAS provides opportunities for intensive engagement, reflection, interaction, and exchange that simply aren't available with other programs. Field-based, experiential learning is a vital component of Semester at Sea. The ship becomes a campus where participants study in a traditional setting, while the world is transformed into an academic laboratory where students earn 20% of their grade. Field Labs are designed and led by a faculty member who has expertise in a particular culture, location, or subject matter. These in-port labs enhance and explore course content. SAS directed trips are led by staff or faculty. May be recommended by a faculty member as an excellent complement to a student's syllabus. Independent Practica are opportunities for a participant to conduct independent research. Requires faculty approval to count as fulfillment of field requirement.

Location:

There are seven decks, student residences, dining halls, a library, recreational facilities, and more. Check out the Semester at Sea website for more information! There are voyages summer, fall, and spring with different routes around the world. The destinations vary slightly every year. While in port, students have the choice to stay in country or on the ship.

The historic city of Lancaster is just ten minutes by bus from the university. It is a friendly, bustling city which has all the amenities of a large city without having lost its charm and character.

Location: 

The city of Brighton and Hove really does have everything: sun, sea, brilliant clubs, great places to eat, fabulous shops, a truly cosmopolitan vibe and an extraordinary atmosphere of tolerance and freedom. And, since students form ten per cent of the city’s population, you can be confident that you’ll find plenty to satisfy your needs. Self-consciously creative, Brighton has a truly diverse cultural scene with a wealth of theatres, cinemas and galleries. From top theatre performances to the variety of experimental productions staged throughout the city, you’ll find something to entertain you. The Gardner Arts Centre on the University of Sussex campus is a well-known venue for dance and contemporary theatre and, back in Brighton, there are plenty of opportunities to catch comedy, cabaret and open-mike nights. Cinema-goers will find plenty to keep them happy. Brighton hosts two multiplex cinemas offering 17 screens for mainstream movies. If art-house cinema is more your thing, head straight to the Duke of York’s, a Brighton treasure and the oldest purpose-built cinema in Britain. The Gardner Arts Centre also shows avant-garde and classic movies. And, in true Brighton style, the beach occasionally plays host to big-screen cult films on summer evenings.

As Europe's largest city, London is so much more than Roman walls, medieval churches, and sprawling Tudor mansions. It is a modern hub of activity where past and present ideas meet as one.
