Roane State is a leader among community colleges in organizing international education programs. More than 700 Roane State students have participated in study abroad programs led by Roane State faculty. Our students have seen Mayan ruins, active volcanoes, coffee plantations, the Normandy landing beaches, sea turtles laying eggs, and so much more! They have restored coral reefs, painted community murals, and performed as a chorus in several European countries. Many of our trips also involve a service-learning component; for example, providing dental hygiene treatment for children in Costa Rica and volunteering at an orphanage in Belize! Not only will you see the world on an RSSC study abroad program, chances are that you will also change lives. Our program directors seek to immerse students in the culture and life of the locales that we visit. Studying Abroad provides a unique opportunity for students to diversify their college education and to expand their knowledge of global culture.
Students that meet minimum enrollment requirements qualify for a partial scholarship towards program expenses. To date, RSCC has distributed over $500,000 in study abroad scholarships.
Roane State is also a member of the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies (TnCIS) that offers study abroad programs open to students at the thirteen Tennessee community colleges, including RSCC. Additional information is available at the TnCIS website or from the RSCC International Education Office. Roane State also offers partial scholarships for these programs.
To get started on your adventure, a FAQ for students page is available to assist with any basic questions concerning study abroad programs at RSCC. The International Education office is ready to help faculty, staff, and students to see the world, you just need to contact us to get started.
