Study Abroad

Interested in Studying Abroad?

American enrollment in college Study Abroad programs has tripled in the past two decades. Study abroad programs allow students to earn credits for courses taken in foreign countries. LMU offers a wide array of credit-bearing courses in over 20 countries. Students can choose from classes in business, the social sciences, foreign languages, the applied and fine arts, and STEM fields. Students can opt for long-term exchange programs (one semester - one academic year, through our overseas partner schools), or shorter-term trips (one-four weeks) during summer, winter and spring breaks. Scholarships are available, including the President's Study Abroad Scholarship and the Gilman International Scholarship. For more information, or to submit an application, contact International Programs at
