International Education


See the world — and earn college credit!

Learn about other cultures, and then travel there to see it for yourself. SUNY Adirondack’s International Education courses include trips to Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. The three- or four-credit INT 204 courses begin in either the fall or spring semester (with travel occurring over winter, spring and summer breaks).

The one- or two-week travel experience portion of the course allows students to actively engage in the culture of other nations.

SUNY Adirondack also enjoys a Sister College relationship with Japan’s Saga City Junior College and Sage Women’s Junior College, which alternates host sites. Students study Japanese culture and visit Saga City through enrollment in INT 206.

Community members may participate in International Education offerings on a space-available basis. Course registration for community members occurs through the Office of Continuing Education.
