IMPORTANT STUDY ABROAD ANNOUNCEMENT 

With the ever evolving concerns and spread of COVID-19 across the world, PPCC leadership have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 trip to Belize and any plans for other 2021 trips.  For additional information visit: https://www.ppcc.edu/Study-Abroad-trips

What is study abroad?

Study abroad programs offer students real life immersion into a different culture. Expand your world views while earning PPCC credit.

"Certainly, Study Abroad in Costa Rica was a Common Intellectual Experience.  In the future we could formalize our relationship as staff/faculty/students with a common assignment that is completed by all of the students before or  during the trip.  When possible, each discipline/class could contribute their own expertise to the common activity.  The Communication class did a great job prepping the group for the trip this time; I'm sure in the future we could find different things for each class to do for group preparation prior to or common activities and/or assignments during the trip."
