Study Abroad: Semester at Sea

Cornell Engineering student EmilySemester at Sea: Canals and the Atlantic

In Fall 2019, I made the best decision of my life and joined Semester at Sea (SAS), a study abroad voyage of discovery. In my time there, I visited the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Croatia, Morocco, Ghana, Brazil, Trinidad and Tobago, Ecuador, and Costa Rica. We would have classes while sailing at sea and then dock at a port for 3-6 days. In that time, we did not have classes and could go anywhere in the country as long as we made it back on the ship before it set sail.

I had always wanted to study in France for a semester because of my experiences learning French in school, but I wasn’t sure I would ever fit it into my schedule as a Computer Science major. I’m here to tell you that not only can you study abroad as an engineer, you can have an amazing time while doing it! I’ll take you along for a day in the life of studying in Metz while discussing some of the things I learned from studying abroad.
