Northern Essex Offers Study Abroad Program
Imagine starting 2018 with a trip touring Donegal and Dublin, Ireland, while earning three college credits in literature. This trip is just one of three short-course, study abroad trips planned by Northern Essex Community College’s experiential learning program for next year and are open to all.
NECC students as well as students from other colleges and universities can participate in this these short-course study abroad trips. Students from other schools may be able to transfer the college credits.
NECC English Professor Elle Yarborough will lead a 10-day tour through Ireland January 4 through January 14, 2018, that will result in credit for literature course – “International Experience in Literature”.
In preparation for the trip, participants will read poetry, essays, short stories, and novels about Ireland and discuss the readings during four Saturday classes in November and December.
The cost of the trip is $3,500 plus the regular cost of tuition. This includes airfare, housing, transportation, meal allowances, etc. The deadline for registering for this course is May 15.
Financial aid may be applied to the cost of trip.
Other short-course trips planned include a three-week June, 2018, trip to Florence Italy and a two-week June 2018 trip to Morocco.

These short-course, study abroad programs are designed for students, who for financial or family reasons, cannot study abroad for a full year or even a semester. Students enroll in an NECC course and meet on several occasions (usually Saturdays) before departure and at least once on return to the U.S. While abroad, lectures and field trips will occupy part of each day. While students will have some free time to explore on their own, these trips are designed to be academic experiences, not vacations.
