Study abroad is an increasingly important part of the college experience.  Exploring new cultures can be life changing, and many students point to their time abroad as the defining aspect of their education. HCC offers the opportunity to travel internationally and earn college credit. Faculty-led international education programs offer a great alternative to the traditional study abroad experience.  Competitively priced, these tours give you the flexibility to take your coursework around the globe in just 1-2 weeks.

College Credit: All trips are components of either HUM 119 or a Special Topics course. All student travelers are required to enroll in the associated course in order to take part in the trip. 3-6 credits may be earned as well as fulfillment of major or elective requirements such as Humanities, Social Phenomena II and Global Knowledge.

For more information about earning college credit, contact Prof. Jamilet Ortiz.
