Study Abroad

As a four-year public institution that underwent a mission transformation from a two-year community college to a four-year state college during the 2008-09 academic year, the College of Coastal Georgia, as part of its new institutional strategic plan, has made a commitment to promote internationalization of the curriculum; advocate for programs of study that prepare students to be globally competent; and identify international and intercultural educational opportunities for faculty and staff.
