The West Virginia University Geography Program and the International Studies Program are offering a seminar on study abroad at sea with the Semester at Sea. Interested students should attend a presentation on the 2012-2013 programs by Dr. Robert W. Smith, retired, US Department of State, and geographic consultant and instructor for the Semester at Sea. The event is on Tuesday, November 15 at 3:00 p.m., in room 325 Brooks Hall. All undergraduate student majors are welcome to attend.

The Semester at Sea visits numerous international locations in spring, summer and fall semesters. Participants travel on the MV Explorer, a modern and safe passenger ship that circumnavigates the globe and explores the world. The ship is both a traveling university and residential home to more than 2,000 participants each year; complete with a student union, wireless Internet, 8,000-volume library, and many of the amenities you’d find on a land-based campus. Credits for the semester are awarded by the University of Virginia.
