INTERNATIONAL STUDIES AND GLOBAL INITIATIVES
Study Abroad Program — Study, Travel and Learn Abroad
IRSC offers several study and travel aboard trips each summer providing students with opportunities to earn college credits as they participate in enriching life-changing experiences. Past study abroad adventures have featured Italy, Greece, Spain, England, Peru and Macedonia.
"The opportunity to study abroad truly makes learning come alive..."
“We’ve found that students who participate in study-abroad experiences develop a much broader understanding of current events, history, art, humanities, business and economics, as well as a deeper appreciation of other cultures. The opportunity to study abroad truly makes learning come alive for students, enabling them to become more knowledgeable citizens and more able to interact effectively with people from many other cultures and backgrounds,” according to Dr. Mary Locke, IRSC Vice-President of Instructional Services and Chairman of the sponsoring Global Initiatives Committee.
