In an age of increased globalization, members of university communities like ours need the experience of living in a different culture. If you participate in these programs, you might find them life changing—you'll certainly have a wider view of the world in which you live than when you first board the plane that will take you to Costa Rica, England, France or Italy. We have a sizable number of students who learned so much and enjoyed their time abroad so much that they participated a second time in a different country. You can earn from three to nine credits over the summer and you will find your classes both interesting and challenging. Our courses have been approved both by the appropriate department or director heads and by the UL Lafayette Study Abroad Program Committee and are taught in non-traditional settings.
If you have any questions, please contact the Study Abroad Coordinator, Pat Mouillé at firstname.lastname@example.org and I know she will be glad to answer your questions and get you started on your time abroad.

Happy travels and studies!
Dr. Gwen Fontenot, Program Director, Study Abroad Programs
