Discover Your Passion for Learning
While studying abroad with Sea|mester gives unique opportunities to travel the world, discover new cultures and take part in the adventure of a lifetime, the backbone of the experience is a comprehensive academic curriculum, accredited through the University of South Florida (USF).
In the Sea|mester environment, combining academics with the experience allows students to truly interact with their education. It brings your education to life, adding relevancy and practical application to the material as well as never-ending opportunities to learn.
