Study Abroad

We strongly recommend that students spend a year, semester, or summer term studying and living in Spain or Latin America.

Study in Spain

Lynchburg College maintains an affiliation with the International University Studies (IUS) for those students interested in studying in Spain. LC faculty teach in the IUS program during the summer term while regular term courses are taught by professors holding advanced degrees from Spanish universities.

Study in Costa Rica

You may join our study abroad summer program with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma in Heredia, Costa Rica. Students receive six credits for two courses and participate in recreational excursions on the weekends. They live with Costa Rican families and are linguistically totally immersed in Costa Rican life.

Study in Latin America

If you are interested in studying in Latin America, LC endorses the programs sponsored by International Studies Abroad (ISA).

ISA and LC's programs in Spanish and International Relations have developed an alternative spring break experience for LC students. On a three-year cycle, LC students will have the opportunity to study and travel in either Argentina, Costa Rica, or Spain.
