The Learning Abroad Center prepares American students by promoting global engagement, internationalizing the campus, and providing educational experiences that lead to learning and reflection in an international context. We provide innovative international learning experiences that expand and redefine the world for a diverse population of students. We emphasize collaboration with colleges, departments, and faculty, both at the University of Minnesota and abroad, and pay close attention to the individual needs of students.

Through this collaboration and individual attention, the Learning Abroad Center promotes empowerment, development, understanding, and responsibility in the global community.
The Learning Abroad Center offers a full range of advising and support services to students on program selection, academic planning, financial planning, registration, credit, cultural adjustment, travel planning, travel products, and reentry.

Programs vary broadly in length, level, academic focus, teaching format, language requirements, cost, and degree of independence demanded of the participant. With planning, students in any undergraduate major can study abroad and fulfill degree requirements.
