Peace Boat US is proud to announce a new program, “Summer at Sea“ organized in partnership with The Institute for Shipboard Education (ISE), which organizes the Semester at Sea program. Summer at Sea is a new short-term, faculty-led study abroad program that takes place aboard Peace Boat voyages. While traveling aboard Peace Boat’s vessel, the Pacific World, students can earn up to six credits— three per session—through Colorado State University. Two voyage sessions, each visiting five ports of call, will be offered each summer. Enrollment is through the Institute for Shipboard Education and the University of Colorado.
Hands-On Learning – Daily observations from deck and course-connected, experiential programming in each port stop.
Multi-Country, Comparative Approach – Understand how different countries around the world are grappling with the same challenges and finding new solutions.
Community – Small cohort sizes mean direct access to our world-class faculty, small group discussions, and a unique living-learning community
Intercultural Growth – In addition to coursework, engage with the community onboard – primarily from Japan and East Asia, around 1000 passengers per voyage – to practice new languages, learn new customs, taste new foods, form lifelong friendships.
