The Center for Learning Abroad (CLA) is responsible for creating opportunities so that every Lynn University student has the chance to study abroad during their degree, whether the program is during January Term, the summer, for a semester or for an academic year.
Lynn University fully recognizes that our students live in a globally interconnected world, both socially and economically, and that study abroad opportunities can be an important part of the overall collegiate learning experience. There is a wide variety of programs available to Lynn University students including those led by Lynn University faculty. The CLA pre-approves all programs before they are made available to Lynn University students in terms of their academic rigor; for health, safety and security; and in terms of student life and support services.
