PCC Global: Study Abroad Options

Pitt Community College is committed to help students and faculty become more globally competent through education abroad opportunities that extend the borders of the classroom and create a deeper level of understanding of the subject matter, the world around us, and how the two are interconnected.  

We offer different types of study abroad options that include PCC GLOBAL: Explore, an academic based program that focuses of cultural exploration and discipline related instruction and PCC GLOBAL: Serve, a service learning based program that focuses on cultural exploration while participating in a service project in the host country.  Each program offers a unique experience for the participant. 

Students may apply for the International Education Travel Scholarship (IETS) as a supplemental assistance in the fall prior to their study abroad program.  Please note: IETS funding is only to be considered as a supplemental scholarship, payment arrangements can be made.
