Rio Hondo College is a member of the Southern California Foothill Consortium that currently offers two study aboard experiences each year that provide students with a unique opportunity to enrich their education. In fall, students study in London, England. Students can travel to Spain in spring.
Students enroll in classes, receive transferable general education units and can apply for financial aid and scholarships to help with the costs. Program courses and activities are geared toward taking advantage of the international location, and students gain invaluable multi-cultural experience by living and learning outside of the United States.
The program is run through nearby Citrus College, but Rio Hondo College has personnel on campus to help you out. For more information contact the Study Abroad Coordinator, Dr. Adam Wetsman (email@example.com). Office hours will be held in Science 320F on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8:00 and 9:30. You can also contact the Department of Behavioral and Social Sciences for more information, located in the Administration building, Room 221 (562/908-3429).
