Georgia Highlands College does not have study abroad programs of its own. However, GHC students are eligible to participate in summer study abroad programs through Kennesaw University’s Montepulciano, Italy program and the University System of Georgia’s many study abroad programs called the USG Goes Global study abroad programs. The USG Goes Global has several study abroad programs to Europe under the European Council and a few programs to Asia under the Asia Council. For details and links to all of these programs, please see the individual tabs about them on this website.
