Each year, Portland Community College offers a variety of opportunities for students to study outside of the United States. A study abroad experience not only teaches a student more about the culture, history, and language of a foreign country, but also encourages the student to observe, reflect, and understand a cultural viewpoint other than their own. Such an experience also broadens the student's perspective and understanding of their own culture. All students who receive financial aid to attend PCC can apply their aid toward a PCC-sponsored study abroad program.
