Study Abroad and Domestic Study Away

Participating in a study abroad program, whether to study, intern, research or volunteer, can be a life-changing experience. At Lake Forest College, we understand that our students have individual learning goals, which is why we have such a robust set of approved study abroad and domestic study away programs — over 250 options in 70 countries! (And this is just our semester options!)
