Experience Cultures of the World
A comprehensive education cannot be confined within the four walls of a classroom. GateWay students have a wealth of exciting opportunities to take their education beyond our campus through study abroad programs.
Summer in Prague: City of 100 Spires
Summer 2016 marks the ten year anniversary of the Inception of the Maricopa Prague Program. In the summer of 2009, instructor Susan Mills led the first GateWay study abroad program in Prague, Czech Republic, otherwise known as the "City of 100 Spires." Each summer, students participate in a month-long immersion in art history, political ideology, philosophy and travel throughout many historical areas of the city and country.

Summer in South Korea and Japan: Trade, Culture, Language and Entrepreneurship
GateWay Community College is the only college in the Maricopa Community College District to offer a study abroad experience in Asia. Students will immerse themselves in the study of the cultures and languages of Japan and South Korea to learn how to form effective international partnerships and to create successes in international trade. In Japan, students will stay with a host family stay and complete real world exercises using Japanese to communicate with native speakers and to enhance learning. We will participate with students from Kyushu University in a business start-up weekend. We will then travel to South Korea to learn about trade and entrepreneurship while working side-by-side with Korean students. This stimulating academic and cultural platform will provide a foundation for students to become globally competent businesspeople and entrepreneurs in the world economy.
