Learn more in Information Sessions and watching 'Education Matters' episode
Preparations are well underway for the Monroe County Community College short-term Study Abroad trip for May 2022 to explore Business and Culture of Eastern Europe. The 12-day trip is open to students, faculty, staff and the community.
Three more information sessions, two virtual and one in person, are scheduled in the coming weeks. On Wednesday, November 24 at 12:30 p.m., and Tuesday, November 30 at 12:30 p.m. and Thursday, December 2 at 6 p.m. interested persons can learn more via Zoom. The links are available at www.monroeccc.edu/events. (The previously scheduled in-person session on November 30 has been changed to a Zoom session.)
Travelers will visit Budapest, Hungary; Krakow, Poland; Prague, Czech Republic; and Vienna, Austria. Stops along the way will include visits to Parliament in Austria and Hungary, Auschwitz and the Jewish Ghetto in Poland, the Opera House in Vienna, a cruise down the Danube and much more.
“This is an immersive learning experience,” said Wendy Wysocki, professor of business and economics and coordinator of the Study Abroad Program at MCCC. “As an educational tour, not just a vacation, the places we will visit support classroom studies. It is recommended that current students will have taken or be enrolled in either SOC 161 – Death, Loss and Grief or BMGT 220 – International Business or the two-credit Study Abroad Experience course during the summer.
“Community members who are not currently registered MCCC students will need to take a two-credit Study Abroad Experience course during the Summer semester. This class prepares all travelers for the various cultural and business explorations we will undertake and enhances the participant’s experience,” she added.
Those who are interested in the trip also have the unique opportunity this month to learn more during the weekly broadcasts of “Education Matters” with Dr. Kojo Quartey, president of MCCC, on Monroe Public Access Television. The half-hour long interview with Wysocki about the Study Abroad Program airs on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. and Fridays at Noon. In addition, this episode of “Education Matters” is available on MCCC’s YouTube Channel at https://youtu.be/b1gTMZjnDbk.
