The Center for Global Education promotes international education to foster cross-cultural awareness, cooperation and understanding. Living and working effectively in a global society requires learning with an international perspective.

We promote this type of learning by collaborating with colleges, universities and other organizations around the world.

California Community College Student Outcomes Abroad Research Project


Step 3: How Study Abroad Counts

What is your academic focus and/or major? Are there courses that you need to fulfill major requirements prior to transferring to a four-year college or university? These are great questions to discuss with your abroad counselor(s), who may be able to find a program that adheres to your academic interests and goals. If you have already found a few potential programs, determine how each one fits into your academic plans by reading descriptions of the courses offered, the number of course units, and the academic area of specialization (if any) for each program. Many will focus on the programís local culture, language, and foods by offering location-specific courses that often meet college requirements.

Set up a meeting with the abroad counselor at your college to confirm the offered courses will meet these requirements (Associateís degree, academic certificate, etc). If you're looking to transfer to a four-year college or university, you can also talk to an advisor on the transfer campus(es) to confirm that credits from study abroad will support your application for admission.

We look forward to collaborating with others who share similar research goals. For further dialogue, please Contact Us.
