NECC offers study abroad courses

NECC’s short term study abroad opportunities are designed especially for students with work or family responsibilities.

Anyone who would like to experience the benefits of studying abroad but doesn’t have time to commit to a full college semester can check out the short-term study abroad experiences available at Northern Essex Community College this spring.

Northern Essex is offering two international courses: Introduction to Archaeology: a Site Exploration of Ancient Turkey and Field Studies in Natural Systems: the Bio-geology of Belize. Students will meet during four Saturday sessions on the college’s Haverhill campus and also take an 11-day trip to Turkey or Belize.

“These trips will allow students to experience a new culture, explore new cities and ruins, and have an experience of a lifetime,” said Marcy Yeager, NECC’s international studies coordinator.

Students are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Those who qualify can have the cost of the trip covered by financial aid.

In addition to traditional semester and year-long study abroad programs, NECC offers short-term international course options, giving working students the opportunity to experience studying abroad. Students in the credit courses meet two to three times before the trip and then after they return.

For more information about Introduction to Archeology: A Site Exploration of Ancient Turkey contact Professor Kristi Arford at karford@necc.mass.edu or 978-556-3353 or Professor Habib Maagoul at hmaagoul@necc.mass.edu or 978-556-3344.

For more information about Field Studies in Natural Systems: the Bio-geology of Belize contact Ken Thomas at kthomas@necc.mass.edu or 978-556-3516 or Professor Marcy Yeager at myeager@necc.mass.edu or 978-556-3326.

With campuses in Haverhill and Lawrence and extension sites in Methuen and Groveland, Northern Essex Community College is a state-assisted college, offering more than 70 associate degree and certificate programs as well as hundreds of noncredit courses designed for personal enrichment and career growth. More than 9,600 students are enrolled in credit associate degree and certificate programs.
