Shasta College’s office of Global Education seeks to expose students to unique and diverse ways of thinking and living, foster healthy intercultural communication and attitudes, empower students to study abroad and be a resource on campus for international students. 

About the Global Education Center

​There are currently several main programs under the Global Education Office:

  1. International Students -  Shasta College welcomes international students! International students applying at Shasta College have a strong support network of a dedicated Admissions and Records specialist, an international student counselor, and student services coordinator. 
  2. Global Expedition – a summer program that allows Shasta College students to take coursework  while assisting with biological and ecological studies in a variety of international settings. In the past, students have visited Honduras, South Africa, and Ecuador, and more!
  3. Study Abroad program – Each semester, a small group of students travel to Soonchunhyang University in South Korea to be part of a cultural internship, live in the dorms among Korean students, take Korean courses and be immersed in the culture of the country.
  4. Global Fellowship – During the summer, Shasta College hosts South Korean students who live in the dorms, attend workshops, and visit northern Californian sights.
  5. ​Campus Events ​- Throughout the semester, there are several campus events either sponsored by, or hosted by the Global Education Center! They are:
