Study Abroad

Considering Studying Abroad?

Studying abroad is one of the most rewarding experiences in a college student's career. Getting to know another culture, living in a new environment, learning a new language, and making new friends are only some of the great benefits that students gain from studying abroad. Equally important for American students is the discovery of their own country - its customs, its traditions and values - as they come to see them from an international perspective. It is common to hear returnees say that the overseas experience has changed their lives.

GlobeA World of Opportunities Around LHU

At Lock Haven University, we bring new meaning to the idea that higher education will broaden your horizons. Imagine horizons as broad as Australia, Mexico, or even China. These destinations are within your reach here at LHU! You can spend a semester or a year abroad in 20+ countries. Go as early as your sophomore year or as late as your senior year. You will live in a residence hall or with a host family at our partner university and take courses that fulfill general education requirements or requirements for major and minor courses of study.

Studying abroad gives you much more than great memories; you will have the opportunity to learn about different cultures and perspectives as well as gain independence and a sense of accomplishment. Studying abroad makes you stand out when applying for jobs in the current global market place.

So who says that school is always "by the book?" Try "lessons in life" the LHU way -lessons from Spain, Taiwan, Finland, or Australia while paying tuition to LHU! Just think ... broadened horizons, better job opportunities, interesting friends, fantastic memories, and not to mention - awesome selfies. All of this await you at Lock Haven University.
