Earning college credits during Summer sessions is a smart thing to do – but earning credits while studying abroad is even smarter.  GRCC offers several faculty-led Study Abroad experiences – and now is the time you should start thinking about how you might take part next Summer.  “Study Away includes a short-term travel experience designed as part of a credit-bearing course. The travel experience is intended to deepen the learning while preparing students to effectively travel. Study Away experiences may be local, regional, national, or international.”

Find out more about Study Abroad experiences see the Department of Experiential Learning website, their Facebook, as well as the Library’s Study Away Subject Guide.
