The 2019 Study Abroad Program trip for MCCC students and community members was a May trip to the British Isles.
The trip included visits to Ireland, Wales and England. The visit to England included London and Stratford-upon-Avon, a market town in Warwickshire that is the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
While on the trip, students took coursework to earn credits towards their degree. Classes offered were Principles of Management, Principles of Marketing and Art Appreciation. Students took one, two or all three of the three-credit courses. Community members who participated enrolled in at least one of the courses.
