Global Studies Committee
Welcome to the Global Studies Committee page. San Juan College is dedicated to promoting international understanding among our students and community members. We offer short term travel study experiences where you can journey beyond the boundaries of the four corners with one of our faculty members. Each trip is offered as a class, and by journeying outside the classroom we empower you to learn about the topic in a real, profound, and often life changing way.
