International Studies Opportunities

To meet the global demands of employment in the 21st Century, Richland Community College encourages students to expand their understanding of other cultures through a number of international studies courses. Richland faculty also organize educational opportunities for students to travel abroad and earn college credit. Students are responsible for any costs incurred; Pell grant funds may be used to cover tuition and fees for some programs.
