What courses will I take abroad?
During a semester abroad you will enroll in a full-time course load. Your schedule might be comprised of courses that fulfill core requirements or it could also include courses for your major. Meet with your Academic Advisor early on to discuss what required courses in your major or minor may need to be taken on campus at LMU, and what requirements you can accomplish through coursework abroad.
