LINCROFT, NJ (Sept. 13, 2016) – Community members ages 18 and up are invited to broaden their horizons this year with a short-term study abroad course offered by Brookdale Community College.

The six-week courses, offered between May and August 2017, blend traditional classroom learning with one- to two-week guided excursions across the globe.

This year students are invited to swim, snorkel and study environmental science in Bermuda; explore local attractions and tour the Tuscan countryside while studying art or public speaking in Italy; or immerse themselves in “the city of light” while studying creative writing or world literature in Paris.

Students who complete a study abroad course earn college credit that is transferrable to other colleges and four-year universities. Residents who apply for an excursion by Nov. 23 are eligible for an early-bird discount. The final application deadline for all courses is Feb. 2.

Brookdale will host free information sessions for each trip throughout October and November. For more information visit or call the Brookdale International Education Center at 732-224-2799.
