Studying abroad opens your mind to so many new possibilities, adventures, and ideas.
It's fairly easy to work study abroad into your academic program at RMC. Most of the credits you earn while away can be transferred and counted toward your degree, and financial aid is also available. Rocky Mountain College has agreements with schools in Sweden, Finland, Japan, Northern Ireland, the U.K., and Jordan to study a variety of subjects, including language and culture. We also work closely with the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP) and their sites worldwide. A big advantage to the ISEP exchange program is that you can use your academic scholarships on these experiences.
There are also many study abroad providers you can use. The providers RMC has most frequently worked with are ISA, AIFS, and AustraLearn to name a few.
Most providers offer various programs at different lengths. You could go to Australia for the summer, Argentina for the Fall Semester, spend the Spring Semester in France, or take off to Spain for a year. There are limitless possibilities.
Some of the professors at RMC also take students of "faculty-led" trips for credit. An environmental studies professor has taken groups to the Galapagos Islands and Costa Rica, while a communications professor takes students to Ireland, and a philosophy professor travels to Israel.
A study abroad experience looks excellent on your resume after you finish college. Many employers, both public and private, look for graduates with unique experiences, wider world-views, and foreign languages.
