Over the past year, more than 140 SPC students have traveled to other countries.

ST. PETERSBURG – St. Petersburg College is ranked second in Florida and sixth in the nation, among associate colleges, for sending students abroad, according to the Institute of International Education’s 2017 Open Doors Report.

Over the past year, more than 140 SPC students have traveled to other countries.

Dr. Ramona Kirsch, director of the Center for International Programs, celebrated the report naming SPC among leading institutions for study abroad education and emphasized the importance of out-of-classroom experience for students.

“When I arrived at SPC a little more than five years ago, SPC was not even on the radar for study abroad,” Kirsch said. “Now, in just a little over five years, we have increased study abroad participation by 113 percent.”

SPC has a broad range of study abroad programs throughout the world. The upcoming 2018-19 programs include:

  • Veterinary Technology students will be working to help troubled sea turtles in Australia
  • Students will discover what makes India a cultural and religious force
  • Social psychology in a global context will be explored in Ireland
  • Students will be working with varying ecosystems and scuba diving in Israel
  • Students will be studying World Literature and Culture in Japan
  • High school students will say “Bonjour, Québec” as they study International Relations and do service learning activities in Canada
