"​As you discover what strength you can draw from your community in this world from which it stands apart, look outward as well as inward. Build bridges instead of walls." 

- Sonia Sotomayor

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. 


There are currently four 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.
