Santa Fe College International Education

International

See the World...Study the World

International Studies at Santa Fe College will assist you in gaining fun and rewarding international experience. You can participate in programs that are offered all over the world and earn credit while in another country on a program led by SF faculty during the Summer or Spring Break.

Students can also consider doing an internship abroad that could transfer as “experiential learning” credit, or doing an “individual study” while abroad. International Studies staff can direct you to funding sources, explain how you can earn credit in another country, and give other support.
