Please see below for current and future opportunities to study abroad with us. Ohlone courses are open to any California resident.

Why Study Abroad?

Study Abroad gives students the opportunity to learn and appreciate the history, culture, language, people, and unique environments of other countries. Students who travel abroad gain life experience, learn to cooperate with others, gain new friends, and find new interests. These types of experiences shape who we are, how we think, and help determine how we perceive others now, and for the rest of our lives. Students generally take one or more Ohlone courses while outside the U.S.
