Every student who studies abroad has different reasons and goals. High priorities for many students include developing sophisticated perspectives on global economic, social, and political issues, seeing the theoretical come to life in a real-world context, learning or perfecting a second (or third!) language, engaging with people and cultures different from their own, developing valuable career skills, and earning academic credit toward a Lehigh degree. You may find, as students before you have, that study abroad is a catalyst for intellectual and personal growth.
The Study Abroad office is here to advise and guide you through the entire process from planning to returning home. Students are encouraged to begin the planning process early in their college career by reviewing information on this site and discussing opportunities with their academic advisor(s) and the Study Abroad Office.
