Study Abroad

Study Abroad programs at COCC with the Oregon International Education Consortium 

Fall Quarter in Barcelona 

Study in the Mediterranean capitol of Catalonia. Explore a city as old as its Roman roots and medieval center, but as new as its Gaudi park, nouveau art architecture and 1992 Olympic make-over. This ten-week program offers activities and courses in Spanish culture and language.  Other AAOT transfer courses offered in fall 2017 will be determined by fall 2016.  (Students at Chemeketa CC, Clackamas CC, Mt. Hood CC, Portland CC or Rogue CC will need to register with COCC for the Fall 2017 term and then transcript their completed classes with their home institution after returning from Barcelona.)
