LCU launched its inaugural Semester in Spain program in the Fall of 2016! This new semester-long program, held every Fall, brings LCU students and professors to the beautiful city of Avila, in the heart of the Spanish countryside. Students take 15 hours of University Core-type credits with LCU professors, while also studying the Spanish language to ease transition to their new culture.  

There are numerous opportunities for personal travel on weekends and holidays, and a week-long faculty-led excursion during the semester.
