London Student Experience - London 2017
“The Study Abroad class is my way of traveling the world. Making new friends along the way, sharing your stories and what you love, making new friends with the same interests and dreams. I made lifelong friendships.”

Criminal Justice in London, Amsterdam, and Paris
May 26 - June 4, 2020
For ten days, ACC students, along with 2 faculty will travel to Europe to experience history, administrative structures, and culture as it relates to Criminal Justice. All tours and activities will be tied to the curriculum. All ACC students are welcome to attend. Course credits will apply towards both the ACC Associates of Arts and Associates of Applied Science Degrees, either as a general elective course for non-majors, or as course credit for criminal justice majors. In addition to keeping a daily journal of your traveling experiences, students will do a reflection presentation for sponsors and the ACC community following the trip.
The cities of London, Amsterdam and Paris have a rich history influencing the foundation and creation of our American Criminal Justice System. Many of the sites discussed in the Introduction to Criminal Justice textbook will be visited in these three cities on this study abroad trip. In London, all three component parts of the criminal justice system will be represented with visits to the courthouse, Old Bailey; a talk with a Metropolitan police officer reviewing the foundation of the Bobbies, and the Tower of London (one of the original modern forms of prisons.) We will also do a night tour of Jack the Ripper, which most students have heard about in their classes. The contribution of the French to the Criminal Justice system with a trip to Paris, mainly focuses on their Civil Legal tradition (as opposed the common law legal tradition) and the advancements of Investigative techniques. Additionally, Amsterdam is rich in Criminal Justice history with a visit to their parliamentary government system, the International Court of Justice at The Hague (just outside of Amsterdam), the History of Torture Museum when punishment followed the spiritual explanation of crime and the Ann Frank house. The academic value of the Ann Frank house demonstrates what happens when the basic rules of the social contract breakdown and both government and people refuse to follow law and order. Please join us for this exciting opportunity to bring history and education to life through experiential learning on this study abroad trip.

Travel Abroad EMS Academy - Dominican Republic
June 1-8, 2020
A learning abroad experience offers EMT graduate students the opportunity to see healthcare in a different form and in different conditions. Education First (EF) offers the Dominical Republic Healthcare tour as a pre-established opportunity. During your time in the Dominical Republic, EMS students will learn about management of the local food and water source. This experience gives depth to the classroom discussion on community wellness. You will meet with local medical workers to learn about the healthcare system and will begin a service-learning project. The exact service learning project will be based on local healthcare needs at the time of the visit but typically involve performing triage assessments of patients, performing height, weight measurements of patients in the clinic or conduct handwashing sessions for locals on the proper way, and importance of hand washing.
You will have the chance to use many of the skills they learned in the classroom. You will be given first hand insight to a healthcare system different from that seen in the United States. You will hopefully return with an appreciation of the healthcare system in their home towns and the needs of others around the world.
