Study Abroad Programs

HCC provides opportunities for unforgettable experiences abroad while helping you complete your degree. 

HCC has six different study abroad/study away programs in six different countries (not all HCC programs are listed below). All of these programs are faculty-led, meaning that HCC study abroad/study away programs are administered by a faculty program director and faculty program assistant. The length of the program usually ranges from one to three weeks. Take your pick below!
