An increasingly popular study abroad option for Cabrini students of all majors is Semester at Sea, a program that offers the world as its campus.
Students truly interested in adding a unique global perspective to the undergraduate experience will find that this "Voyage of Discovery" is a life-altering learning adventure.
The shipboard curriculum provides insights into various cultures and societies, with the onboard professors providing students with the tools to analyze them meaningfully. These intellectual skills will last a lifetime, allowing students to understand new places and to relate past experiences to future situations.
Courses in the program focus on global crisis issues—the environment, population, foreign-policy relationships, and economics—in the context of the nations visited during the cruise. The ship becomes the campus on which participants study in a traditional setting, while the world is transformed into an academic laboratory where students earn 20% of their grades.
The possibilities are limitless. A homework assignment might be to visit an elephant sanctuary in Thailand, to reflect upon the complexities of Cambodia and the beauty of Angkor Wat, or even to volunteer at an orphanage or work on a building project.
Semester at Sea offer students an opportunity to experience in one semester the rich diversity of our world's cultures. It is the perfect choice for any Cabrini student drawn to a global, comparative study-abroad experience.
