If you're yearning to explore your world, then Off-Campus Programs can help.

Let our office help find the right study abroad opportunity for you, whether that is through our extensive catalog of affiliated programs or our very own London Centre or Francophone Seminar in Dakar, Senegal programs. Rather stay in the U.S.? We can help there as well with a portfolio of domestic off-campus programs that apply to a variety of majors and interests!

Student Perspective

“...my experiences...have not only deeply integrated me into the field I intend to go into, by enabling me to hear from government experts and foreign policy experts, but it also has taught me about what is more valuable with regard to governance.”

Domestic Off-Campus Programs

We understand that not everyone wants to travel abroad, and that is why we also offer a number of affiliated domestic programs. Like with our affiliated study abroad programs, your financial aid will travel with you to help with costs and grades will automatically transfer back to Lawrence.
