Study Abroad at LCC International University

Klaipeda, Lithuania

Program Overview
George Fox University students may apply to study in Lithuania for one semester through a cooperative agreement with LCC International University in Klaipėda, Lithuania. Study Abroad Lithuania is designed for students in almost any major with course offerings in various disciplines.

LCC is an international university with 600 students from more than 20 countries; all courses are taught in English. Throughout the semester, students have the opportunity to engage in the local community through internships and volunteerism as well as travel throughout the Baltics and Russia. Students live alongside other Eastern European students in LCC student residences. 

Course Content
LCC offers majors in business, English, psychology and theology and minors in sociology, and conflict studies. You will find a variety of classes in those subjects. However, all majors can apply to Study Abroad Lithuania. Due to the wide range of courses available – including general education and Bible coursework – our program works for almost all majors. Current course offerings can be found here. Students have access to textbooks from the LCC library (you don’t have to buy them).  

Students will also have the opportunity to engage in the local community through internships and volunteerism.

Excursions
Students have the opportunity to travel throughout Lithuania and to Riga, Latvia, and Tallinn, Estonia, for a weekend, as well as to St. Petersburg and Moscow, Russia, during the one-week semester break. There is also the option to travel throughout Europe as time allows.
