International Education

Education abroad is a powerful way for students to build real world skills, gain self-confidence, and develop global awareness. Moraine Park Technical College provides several international education opportunities. Short-term programs in 2015 will include service learning projects in Jamaica, hands-on business and marketing experiences in Ireland, and exchange programs in Germany. Students can also spend a full summer or semester abroad while earning Moraine Park credits!
