Students are challenged to re-examine themselves, their attitudes, and their studies as they learn to understand new and different cultures. In cooperation with the American Institute for Foreign Study, the Los Rios Community College District offers unique study opportunities in cities such as London, England; Barcelona, Spain; and Florence, Italy.
