Semester in London
The Fall 1998 program had 36 students from SRJC. Because the College participates in a consortium for the London semester, students could choose from nineteen courses. Gus P'Manolis (Social Science) and Ida Egli (English) are the two SRJC faculty in the program. Ida also assisted the Work in Britain program during the Fall 1998 semester. The SRJC courses offered in London were English 1B (Literature and Composition and Survey of English Literature), English 48.25 ( The Mystery of it All), History 4.2 (Western Civilization from 1648), Humanities 7 (Introduction to Humanities), Political Science 1 (Introduction to U.S. Government), Political Science 2 (Introduction to Comparative Government), and Social Science 48.11 (British Life and Culture).
Work in Britain
The Work in Britain program enrolled twenty students in the Fall 1998 semester. Twelve are SRJC students; the remaining eight are from other Northern California schools. Visit the Work in Britain page for more information.
Semester in Florence
The recruitment for Florence is underway. Business Administration faculty member Rich Cheek will participate and offer Political Science, Business Administration, and Communication Studies. Students will also have the chance to enroll in courses ranging from Italian to English and Art.
Recruitment is currently underway for a two-week course during Winter Break to the Peruvian Amazon to study tropical rain forest ecology and biology. Chris Christopher of the Life Science Department will serve as the instructor and coordinator of the course. He is planning a short course in Costa Rica in 1999 during the Spring break and the summer session.
Santa Rosa Junior College hosts International students from all over the world. A large portion of these students are from Asian countries such as Japan, China, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, etc. This reflects a national trend: Most International students studying in the U.S. are from Asia. We have 127 students and over 30 countries represented for Spring 1999.
Business is the most popular major for International students in the U.S. This trend is represented at SRJC as well. Other majors include health professions, computer science, engineering, and psychology.
A special orientation is held for new International students in August
and January, just before the semesters begin. These orientations
are coordinated by Kim Hunt, Karen Kallam, and Karin Guzman.
