Available Programs

Our study abroad programs fall into two main categories: LSU faculty-led and semester programs. Learn about their unique benefits below.


LSU Faculty-Led Programs

LSU faculty-led programs are directed by LSU professors and designed specifically for LSU students. You'll travel together with fellow Tigers to participate in a global learning experience tailored to your degree program. These programs are usually short-term, from a week to a summer.

Semester Programs

Semester programs allow you to enroll in other universities — both in the US and around the world — to make new connections outside the LSU community, and to be fully immersed in another university's world. These programs are longer, for one or more semesters, up to a full academic year. 




Is Study Abroad Right for Me?

If you're ready for hands-on global learning and a new personal challenge, study abroad may be right for you. LSU offers a wide range of programs, allowing you to tailor your plans to meet your academic, personal, and professional goals. Resources are also available to help you fund your program and prepare for traveling or living in a new culture. Check out our resources, or set up an appointment with our ambassadors, at the links below. Our ambassadors are LSU students who have studied abroad and can give you firsthand information about their experiences so that you can be confident in your decision.
