Earn college credit in Bali this summer

The GCC Study Abroad program is offering transferable, college credit geography and anthropology courses in Bali this summer.

Students will be abroad June 21 thought July 15 following on-campus meetings June 11 through 19.

The college has offered programs in summer, winter and spring to Paris, Prague, Armenia, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Italy, Greece and Ireland and more.

In Bali, GCC professors will teach the courses while students also learn about the food, culture, religion and people of the island. Excursions to ancient ruins and temples, watching Balinese dances, feeding monkeys in Monkey Forest, sailing and snorkeling will be part of the experience. An additional trip to Borneo to see the wild orangutans is offered for an additional cost.

Interested participants must enroll in both the geography and anthropology courses. The cost is $3,750 and includes airfare, accommodations, excursion trips and many of the meals.

Study-abroad programs at the college follow the guidelines developed by the Council on International Educational Exchange for the U.S. Department of State, which focus on expansion of student opportunities for study and work abroad, as well as the guidelines of the California Colleges for International Education, a consortium of California community colleges.
