Study Abroad Opportunities
LCSL majors and minors don’t need to study abroad, but many find it to be an incredibly rewarding value-add to their UIC experience. And most see little to no added cost over what they pay in a normal semester. Students can choose language intensive programs, ones offering credit towards a variety of majors from psychology to engineering, or programs that are great options to fulfill general education requirements.

Exchanges for More Advanced Students
Some students prefer an exchange program, where they take classes directly from an international university, just as a home country student would. These can be particularly great options for advanced students who are highly independent.

When I moved to Paris, it turns out I was on line at a stop we had studied a lot (in FR 297) so it was really kind of a full circle experience of taking this course and it wasn’t what I thought it was going to be but I ended up enjoying it and learning a lot about different groups in Paris. And then when I moved there I was right by the heart of all those different groups and in different cultures and it was all around me.
