Developing a global perspective is key to a Luther education, and while it’s part of daily life at Luther, what better way to learn to think globally than through off-campus study? More than two-thirds of Luther students participate in study-away programs, broadening their worldview and gaining firsthand experience with global issues and ideas.
As a Luther student, you can choose among dozens of programs, and you can study away for an academic year, a semester, a J-term, a summer, or a combination. Some students use study-away programs to explore new interests, while other students, such as many language majors or international studies majors, study internationally to fulfill program requirements.
Regardless of the reason, studying off-campus will help you gain a better respect for diversity, increase your cross-cultural communication skills, examine your personal values, and develop greater self-confidence.
