Semester at Sea is a unique opportunity to travel around the world with a cruise ship as your campus and an ever-changing scenery as your view. On board the MV World Odyssey, our seven deck, 590-foot ship, you will have the opportunity to select from 70-72 courses across a wide range of disciplines. In one semester, you will get exposure to 10-14 countries across multiple continents, earn 12-15 credits from Colorado State University, and transit over 20,000 nautical miles.
Go to class while sailing the sea, watch the sunset over the Indian Ocean or stare up at the Mediterranean stars. Whether in class, studying, or engaging in shipboard activities, you’re always a few steps away from friends, the ocean and a global perspective.
- Earn 12-15 academic credits from Colorado State University
