Why Study Abroad?

Studying abroad transforms the way you look at the world and yourself.  For more than a decade, John Tyler Community College has organized international education trips to places such as Greece, France, Vietnam, Italy, England, Scotland, Ghana and Peru.

The courses we've covered have been just as diverse. Students have earned college credit in nursing, Spanish, philosophy, theatre, information technology, history, English, art and more, all while immersing themselves in the communities and cultures they visit.

Whether you choose to participate in one or all of the courses covered during a particular trip, you will be welcome to participate in all planned activities.
