Study Abroad in Summer 2014!

Ready to see the world and experience new cultures? Would you like to live in another country for the summer? This summer, MPTC students can live abroad and earn 6-8 college credits through our partnership with the Illinois Consortium for International Studies & Programs (ICISP). Month-long study abroad opportunities for the summer include Costa Rica, China, Austria and France.

Costa Rica:
Students will receive seven semester hours of credit in Spanish language (all levels) and Culture and Civilization of Costa Rica. The Culture and Civilization of Costa Rica class consists of lectures and discussions accompanied by field trips and activities designed to engage students in active learning and discovery. There will be additional optional excursions to La Fortuna Waterfall and Isla Tortuga.
Costa Rica is just one location where MPTC students can spend the summer and earn college credit!

: Students can earn college credit in topics ranging from International Business to Photography at Salzburg College, a private college for English-speaking students. At the college, students attend classes taught in English by Austrian professors. Classes are small and allow for a close relationship with the instructor. T
he instruction in this program will entail classroom instruction as well as field trips and immersion experiences.

China: The program includes a four-week stay in residence halls at Xian International University, as well as classes on culture and the Chinese language. Students will also participate in exciting field trips while earning college credit.

France: Students will study in Dijon, France, located at the crossroads of Europe. Capital of gastronomy and gateway to the prestigious vineyards of Burgundy, Dijon is exceptionally rich in history and art. Heir to the splendors of the glorious court of the Dukes of Burgundy, the city boasts numerous monuments, museums, and architectural jewels including churches, cathedrals, and private residences dating from the Middle Ages.
Students: Did you know you can earn college credit in France this summer or fall?!

Applications for summer opportunities will be due
in early February, so get started soon! There will also be opportunities to spend the entire fall semester abroad while earning MPTC credits. Locations for Fall 2014 will include those listed above as well as Spain, England and Ireland. For more information, contact International Education at
