While all Clayton State students will be preparing for the holidays (after the end of this week’s exams, that is), some will also be preparing to study abroad in 2012.
The Clayton State Office of International Programs (OIP) has set its 2012 Study Abroad list, with nine programs ranging from 10 days to full semesters. During 2012, Clayton State students will be studying abroad in; Bahamas, Guadalajara, Hungary/Austria, Italy, Jamaica, Panama, South Africa and Turkey. In addition Clayton State also takes part in the European Council program, which has options located in England, France, Germany, Ireland, Russia and Spain.
”During the holiday season, take this opportunity to talk with family and friends about attending one of Clayton State University’s study abroad programs,” suggests Clayton State Director of International Programs John Parkerson in an email to Clayton State students. “International experience is a big resume and transcript booster. Many employers feel that studying abroad shows great initiative in today’s international marketplace; it makes you stand-out from the crowd and a more interesting job candidate. Studying abroad is a great way to learn about different cultures first-hand. It’s also the best way to practice or learn language skills which is another valuable skill in our international economy.”
