    Lang Study Abroad

    The Office of Global Programs, located in the dean’s office at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, is dedicated to promoting the academic and personal growth of undergraduates through international education. Each year, many Lang students study abroad, usually for one semester, in more than 50 pre-approved programs, including faculty-led programs during the summer.

    Get Started:

    1. Review the Frequently Asked Questions (PDF).

    2. Meet with your Student Success advisor and complete the required form: Lang Study Abroad Academic Review Form 1 (PDF).

    3. Schedule an appointment with an advisor at the Lang Global Programs Office for one-on-one advising. Complete the following forms and bring them to your appointment:

    Students may begin to think about study abroad in their first year and are welcome to visit the Study Abroad Resource Rack, conveniently located in the Lang Academic Advising office, at 64 West 11 Street, ground floor, and in the dean's office, at 65 West 11th Street on the third floor. Learning more about study abroad and deciding whether to apply and where to study is an important part of your sophomore year. As you focus your academic interests, consider incorporating study abroad into your path of study. In the second semester (before completing 60 credits), sophomores are expected to declare a major. As a sophomore, you will meet with the departmental faculty advisor for your declared major and continue consulting your Student Success advisor. Discussing your intention to study abroad during your consultations with them will provide valuable guidance.

    Information Sessions

    Information sessions are offered during the academic year. They are a mandatory part of the study abroad process. If you are a student considering studying abroad, we strongly recommend that you attend these sessions to ensure that you have all the information you need to make a decision. Information about other events, including pre-departure meetings, and financing study abroad can be found at Narwhal Nation.

    SMART Conversations

    Share your Skills, Memories, Adventures, Research, and Thoughts.
    Launched in fall 2019, SMART Conversations is an initiative of Lang’s Office of Global Programs. This program offers students a space in which to engage in conversation about their education, leadership, and cross-cultural engagement abroad. Instructors from Lang faculty-led summer study abroad programs are invited to collaborate with their students to showcase the students' accomplishments during this event. SMART Conversations occur twice in the academic year: once in the fall, for students who went abroad in the previous spring semester and summer, and once in the spring, for students who went abroad in the previous fall semester.

    Lang Global Programs

    Lang offers the following liberal arts study abroad programs:

    • Global Immersion. Offered through Lang's partnership with ICADS (Institute for Central American Development Studies), this program enables students to combine classroom learning with practical experience through research on and analysis of Central American social and economic issues.  
    • Faculty-Led Programs. Several short-term, relatively inexpensive programs are led by Lang faculty during academic breaks — an excellent choice for students who are short on time or funds. Students can also opt to study for a semester or academic year through specific partner schools, paying Lang tuition as usual and keeping institutional financial aid from The New School. Past programs have examined avant-garde theater at an international fringe festival; contemporary music history, with an excursion to a techno music parade; democracy and diversity; educational and therapeutic use of visual arts; and classical European literature and music.
    • Exchange and Partner Programs. Because of special exchange agreements with certain institutions, Lang students can study abroad for a semester or a year. They do not pay the institutions’ tuition; instead, they pay tuition to Lang and keep their institutional financial aid from The New School. Students can use earned credits toward their Lang degree.
