Studied in via Semester At Sea: Italy, Croatia, Greece, Senegal, Brazil, Morocco, Trinidad and Tobago, Costa Rica and Spain


One of the most difficult aspects of studying abroad is deciding where to go. Fortunately for indecisive people such as myself, Semester at Sea (now sponsored by CSU) was created as a way to study abroad in over ten different countries. I embarked on my voyage last fall, spending 100 days on a ship, splitting my time between classes and roaming all different countries. The classes themselves make the voyage entirely worth it. Forget the average Composition 150; Semester at Sea provides an opportunity to take classes such as Geography of Wine and Drawing at Sea. Each class is small, intimate, and taught in English; however, many clubs aboard the ship teach other languages if that is a student’s intention.
