Honors Study Abroad Program
Honors Program students can earn Honors credits while participating in study abroad.
Every other January, CCAC Honors offers an eleven-day study abroad experience in India.
Three Honors courses prepare students for the excursion abroad: Comparative Politics
and Culture between the United States and India, Honoring the Community through Service,
and Art, Architecture and Material Artifacts. Apart from appreciating art and architecture
of various historical sites and monuments, students engage in close interactions with
local people through service with local NGO’s and partake in religious ceremonies
and local celebrations.
“The community service that I was able to offer was one of the most rewarding experiences
I’ve ever had in my life. Your support for our trip allowed me to see people overcoming
adversities that I myself couldn’t even imagine, and I will forever be thankful for
- Brandy Teprag
“The more time I spend in India, the more I realize that I assume that other cultures
will work to understand me, instead of vice versa. It makes me realize that my window
on the world has a very comfortable window seat.”
- Grace Aquilina
"Because of your generous actions, we were able to accomplish our goals in India.
While there, we expanded our knowledge of India's incredibly rich culture, its historical
architecture, and met with non-governmental organizations to further our understanding
of service leadership."
- Marci Demaio
"Immersing myself in such a giving and kind culture is unforgettable. Seeing the
way others live was so eye opening. The experiences I gained in India have left
me deeply humbled, and I am forever changed.”
