Study Abroad Office

About Our Office

We realize that in an increasingly global economy it is imperative that our students have access to international experience that will help them to lead in the 21st century. Studying abroad offers students a chance to serve, live and study in a setting that can broaden their intellectual horizons and expose them to other cultures in ways that are not possible at the home campus. For this reason, international experiences in a cross-cultural environment are part of Liberty University’s number-one aim, “Contribute to a knowledge and understanding of other cultures and of international events.”

Our office is here to help students select a program that best fits their educational needs. We offer both semester and summer-long programs.
