Study Abroad

Students at the College of Coastal Georgia may participate in study abroad programs offered by the University System of Georgia (USG Goes Global), affiliated partners, and third-party providers for academic study and service-learning in other countries. These programs enhance students’ cultural awareness and competence, improve their global perspective, and provide hands-on knowledge in their specific programs of study. To be eligible to apply for a study abroad program, a student must:

  • be enrolled in a degree program at Coastal Georgia
  • be 18 years of age or older by the start of the program
  • complete two semesters on campus before going abroad
  • have a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average at the time of application
  • be in good academic, financial and disciplinary standing

In light of the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the ability to safely travel, a virtual study abroad option will be available to students should travel concerns arise in 2021. A virtual study abroad program is designed to immerse a student in another region and culture as a significant part of the course. Since authentic interactions with others is a key part of study abroad, a virtual study abroad program would likely take a Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) approach that would enable students to have significant intercultural experience within their specific course of study.
