Teach Abroad Opportunities

Shoreline Community College values international teaching as an important component of our college's mission to prepare a more informed and effective global citizenry.

 

Teach abroad opportunities are available through three different initiatives.

See Chart for an overview of these options.

 

1.  International Education Advisory Committee (IPAC)

International Education facilitates credit-bearing international teach-abroad opportunities for SCC faculty in coordination with the International Education Advisory Committee (IPAC). International Education provides program funding to faculty and eligible staff to develop and implement short-term three/four week international summer institutes. Program recipients work collaboratively with International Education staff to coordinate program development and student recruitment. Proposals are due in February each year.

 

2. Self–Support Study Abroad

Study abroad programs may also be approved as a self-support program. Applications for self-support study abroad are due to your Division Dean by June 1 of the year preceding the proposed program departure. Applicants will be screened through a formal interview process with representatives from International Education and Dean Team
