Broaden Your Horizons through Global Studies at SMCC

The Global Studies Center at SMCC seeks to internationalize the college through the development of new curriculum, the support of international students and events, and Education Abroad programming. We collaborate with a variety of entities on campus to prepare students for a globalized future.

What opportunities does the Global Studies Center offer you?

Study Abroad/Global Classroom

Global Classroom courses are credit-bearing, semester-long classes with a short-term field experience, usually an international travel experience, that are offered in a variety of different academic subject areas. To find out what courses are currently offered contact the Global Studies Center.

George Mitchell Peace Exchange Program

The George J. Mitchell Peace Scholarship provides opportunities for students from the Maine Community College System (MCCS) to study at the Cork Institute of Technology for a semester or a year. To learn more, visit the MCCS website.

New Brunswick Exchange

Programs of study at New Brunswick’s 11 community colleges are open to Maine residents on a space-available basis and at roughly the same price they would pay at a Maine community college. To learn more, visit the MCCS website.

Programs Offered Outside of SMCC

The Global Studies Center can also assist you in researching international opportunities through other educational institutions or third-party providers. These links are offered for informational purposes and are not affiliated with SMCC, but Global Studies Center staff can offer additional one-on-one advising and information.
