The Semester at Sea program takes studying abroad to a new level, and students on the ship can journey literally around the world. For example, this spring’s trip takes students to Japan, China, Vietnam, Singapore, India, Mauritius, South Africa, Ghana, Morocco, and Spain. The Semester at Sea program is sponsored by the University of Virginia, and other colleges and universities partner with the school to offer the amazing experience to their students.
