(17.02.07 - 13:38) The Scholar Ship is a new model for international education. It is an oceangoing academic program for international students aboard a passenger ship dedicated exclusively to undergraduate and postgraduate education.
During a 16-week semester, we take you around the world, where you will pursue numerous opportunities through our port program, in which you participate in academic field studies, shore excursions and independent travel. Our port program is highly integrated into our classroom curriculum, making for a sophisticated experiential learning experience.
You will be joined by 600 students from around the world who share your understanding of the importance of developing your intercultural competence and leadership skills as a means to a successful career.
Onboard, you will be completely immersed in a multicultural living environment. Our international student body and staff form a learning community that integrates academic, cultural, and social experiences in programs that would be virtually impossible to duplicate otherwise.
To succeed in this increasingly interdependent world, you need more than linguistic abilities. You need the intercultural knowledge, understanding and leadership skills that come from experiences among many cultures. This is what The Scholar Ship can offer you.
"Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one´s little corner of the earth all one´s life."
- Mark Twain
The Scholar Ship will take you to all four corners. Inaugural voyage, September 2007.
